Is just to begin naming what is grown in the garden in the french family home, I haven't even begun to list what was growing in the large vegetable beds, from which Alain harvested les legumes - vegetables - for our dinner.
One afternoon during our stay, Jean and I took our books into the orchard, and sat in the dancing afternoon light beneath the grape vine trellis.
I brought my camera too, in an attempt to capture the beauty of the moments revealed as the sun lowered in the blue sky.
Later we played Pétanque and enjoyed post game drinks in the garden, of beer with grenadine ( a french sirop - syrup - made from grenades - pomegranate - ) and olives.
