French Diary

2nd September 2007 (beginning a year in the Dordogne)

Feels like Autumn, mist heavy this morning & quite chilly. The garden really needs the goats back, it is looking very lush & overgrown, especially the willow tree. Two cockerells have been 'taken-away' so it is a lot quieter in the morning.
Visit to Rauffet. Even more wonderful than we remembered. Judy went through all the things we have to do. Can't believe I'm looking forward to living next to a forest!
Never lived anywhere where you can pick lemons for your gin, walnuts for your salad, figs for breakfast, apples for your lunch and even grapes!
St Francis-Michael will be looking after all the birds & loads of fish.
