Back from one trip and getting ready for another

We had a really quiet time in France. One of our best holidays there I think.  We just relaxed and enjoyed the atmosphere of living in another house in another country .  I am sure I've explained that the house we stay in belongs to Brian's cousins family.  It is in a very small and quiet village in Normandy.   They have had the house for several years now and we are so lucky that we are invited to join cousin Sue and her husband Malcolm when they stay there.  We enjoy their company very much.

One place we did visit was a nursery and garden run by an English lady, Alison Sykes.  Alison herself showed us around her garden which was lovely and autumny.  It was hard to imagine that just five years ago it was a field.   Unfortunately the nursery was closed the day we visited, but we hope to visit again.

I loved this display of herbs in the square pots on the windowsill.
We also visited a market and saw these ducklings and chicks for sale.  Something we don't see in our markets any more.

I am now getting ready for a trip to Adelaide in South Australia to visit my family.  I have two sisters and various nieces and nephews who live there, and another sister who lives near Sydney.    I can't wait to see them all again.
