A holiday in France in June was a rare treat for us even though the sky turned grey, the rain poured down and lightning seemed to split the heavens in two.. We left the farm in the capable hands of Bryony and drove onto the ferry in Plymouth. We travelled south to Bordeaux for a few days then up to La Rochelle and the Ile de Rai finally retracing our steps to our dear friends in Northern Brittany. I spent a glorious three days talking food, future blogs, and garden design with Evelyne. (see: Letters from Brittany) The restoration of their house is a triumph and their joy in it all a match to the beauty of the place. We had a magnificent time. And the landscape is so strangely familiar!
