the photo album of 2013

At last, a few days before Labour Day - uff, I will be allowed to enjoy the first of May ! - I could finish the photo album of 2013 with a selection of the photos received from our guests.

Thanks a lot to everybody who contributed.

As you can see from the pictures it was a hot summer with a lot of birds (esp. owls), bees and butterflies.

I hope you like it.

Deer all around

It's has been a winter's time since my last post.
As in most parts of Western Europe winter has been rather "hot" here and rainy but - contrary to last winter - not that grey at all.

But now spring is in the air and I want to break my bear's sleep.

I don't know if it is due to spring time or because of the mild winter but for the first time since we live here, i.e since 6 years, we see a lot of deer around the house and in the whole of Prayssac.
According to the older neighbours this is very exceptional.

I always loved this animal - not only because of its natural beauty and elegance - so it's nice to see them around much nearer.

Here they are - our new friends.
