Les vaches de Normandie — Norman cows.


Yesterday on a country road. Cows marching for the morning milking session, around 10 o'clock. The farmer's wife is at the back, urging the cows on. He is somewhere at the head of the procession. 
Note the huge udder in th first photo. Stone crosses with crucifixes are at every crossroad in our parts.

Remembrance Sunday Poppies

Someone asked me the other day if poppies do really grow in Flanders fields.

They do, and in Normandy too. Here is a photo of red poppies in a field of wheat near the town of Falaise, where the battle for Normandy finished 70 years ago in 1944.

Homage to Ukraine.



Blue sky and flaming yellow blossom of a rape seed field. The colours of Spring in Normandy.

Blue and yellow are also the colours of Ukrainian national flag. I took this photo near the village of St Cristophe de Chaulieu in South Manche.
