Summer has Officially Arrived

I declare summer open. Our first gite guests arrived yesterday, the streets of Cluny were drenched in sunlight and there were loads of foreign tourists, the brusque man on the vegetable stall in the market gave me a smile (first ever!), we ate our Saturday lunchtime kebab at Le Bosphore on their freshly installed summer terrace, it was 26 degrees in the shade while I was mowing the grass, Fifi did nothing all day except move from one shady sleeping place to another and we had our first barbecue of 2011 last night.

It was lovely to sit in the garden, nice and warm and not wrapped up in our winter woollies, sipping wine whilst eating chicken saté fresh from the barbecue, accompanied by crocking frogs and chirping birds. Paradise in the sun!

    While Summer has just arrived at your particular piece of Paradise, we've also had a lovely day yesterday. But today promises rain and ten degrees below what we had yesterday....
    We hope to visit La Tuilerie soon, to help out with all the barbequeing and wine-sipping.
