Wind turbines and a church.

A wind farm towering over the church in Fresne-Porêt, a village on the border between the Orne and South Manche. / Un parc éolien domine l'église à Fresne-Porêt, un petit village à la frontière entre l'Orne et le Sud Manche.

July. Country lanes.

July. Country lanes in dappled sun.

Nightmare to drive, can't see a thing from the sun into the shadows. /

Julliet. Les petits routes Normands sont beaux en plein soleil. Mais pour rouler, c’est un vrai cauchemar. Quand on est au soleil il est impossible de voir tout ce qui est caché sous les ombres.

Mortain. Summer in Normandy, 2016. +33º

Lunch in Mortain. I didn't know why they planted a yucca tree and erected a water sculpture in the centre of town, right in front of the cathedral. Today I discovered why.
+33 in our parts.

Déjeuner à Mortain. Je ne sais pas pourquoi ils ont planté un arbre de yucca et érigé une sculpture d'eau dans le centre de la ville, juste en face de la cathédrale. Aujourd'hui, je découvré pourquoi.

+33 dans notre localité!

A Salamander and a Slug.

Summertime and it's raining. Walked out into the garden this morning and was greeted by a tiny fire salamander and a slug. It looked like they were having a conference, but neither spoke, so it was hardly a replacement for a parrot or a sunny morning.

A Winter Banana Apple

This is a collage, two photos put together. The one on the left is a true image of a late ripening variety called Winter Banana, and the one on the right is just the same image, but flipped horizontally.

I've decided to update this blog's header.

If you want anything similar for your projects, contact me, the editor, via this blog.
