Morning all.


So fed up with this bug. I know it's gradually getting better but I had another huge bout of rib hurting coughing in the night and woke up with conjunctivitis (again) this morning. Don't think standing in the -9° cold for the Maire's funeral was a good idea. Been to the Pharmacie for drops.


We are almost out of milk so will have to go to the SM.


Glad Wonky is enjoying her new job.


Was -10° at 9am.

They are so pretty Liri.


It was -12° here at 8.15am.


We went to the Maire's funeral this morning. It was freezing, -9° in the village at 10am. Everyone gathered outside the Mairie for tributes and speeches then we walked down the road to the church, but the church is very small so a lot, including us, couldn't fit in. There were loudspeakers outside but they didn't work very well. I thought he would be buried in the village cemetery, but he is being cremated this afternoon, family only. He was such a nice man, been Maire since 1983, only 64 yrs old.

This evening we are going to an ecumenical service for Christian Unity Week in the French Protestant Temple. It's usually packed with everyone from the French Catholic bishop to the English C of E. Refreshments afterwards and lots of chatter (in French).

Sorry Obelixx, I should have told you to look at the site with your eyes shut! I've had perennials from them, which arrived in good condition. Only the Anemone Wild Swan died, but I've had that from other sources and they all died. Never had roses from them.

It's looking very good for a garden in winter. aym I'm pretty sure it already has acers and bamboo, I saw them on the programme and I know the tree in the patch of earth is an acer, wearing it's naked winter coat! And there is a bamboo behind the red bench. The red looks great.
