|Sunrise looking out the back door|
The BIG announcement this month ( as some of you already know) is the arrival of a letter from the Interior Minister of France telling us that WE ARE FRENCH. Oh la la!!
|The big pine tree between our patio and our neighbors|
yard is gone. It had started to lean (not good)
and was getting too big for the space !
I think it was a Norway pine
|This front corner was full of bushes and a broom tree. Since this|
is the water intake, we thought it best to plant something that
does not have deep roots (front yard south corner). Have not decided yet
what it will be.
|Side yard- had lots of irises on the left near the fence..how|
many will come back in spring? And now what tree to plant.
Something small, about 12-15 feet tall
|Front yard. The lavender has grown to giant size and was|
not pretty any longer. now what to do?
|Backyard...replanted some herbs already and my vegetable|
garden is across the back. Had it tilled and will plant it next spring
|Empty back yard again|
|The chateau we did not get to visit|
First, how does one do this? Any idea how much a 9 meter length of rail weighs? Problem was solved and the cleaning, cutting, and grinding started this Saturday.

|An old vat that was used to make wood charcoal - near the line|
that passed from Meuilley to Arcenant.
