Cette Pâques

Poor weather the first week of our Easter hols meant we didn’t get out and about that much.

We also had quite a bit of gardening to do.  We are hoping to build an extension to ourlittlehouseinfrance. The builder is hoping to start at the beginning of May and we needed to move some plants as they will be in the way.  So there was a good deal of digging for Paul.

I brought this stool from the UK.  Purchased it from a charity shop and it was already shabby chic so just gave it a wash and now it has a new home in France.

Went to a couple of vide greniers and purchased four demijohns (see previous post).  Also on my hit list for this year is an old wine bottle dryer, this is the spiky metal object in the middle of the picture below.  I know, it’s sad😂

There were more birds in the garden this year.  I do think that the increase in plants attracts them.  This is a dove but we also have a nesting bird of prey, just didn’t get a really good photo😕

As usual, Bella enjoyed the garden and the sunshine in week two.

I planted a fig tree given to me as a Christmas present by my friend Zena.  So I’m hoping that the weather isn’t too dry over the next few months.

The garden got several grass cuts by Paul.  So we left it looking like a bowling green.  Not sure how long that will last?

We moved other plants close to our garden shed.

We went for a lovely walk one day.  The blossom is gorgeous at the moment and the spring flowers a real treat.

Can you see the Heron below?

Here’s our famous windmill in the distance.

Marmande, our nearest big town, has a super skate/BMX park at the side of the river Garonne.  I think Grandma must have been telling me the tale of the old iron pot here😆

And Marmande old town was also a revelation.  I didn’t think it would be so pretty.
