We have arrived in Bordeaux where vines replace rolling hayfields

and the sunflowers are all dead. The fields look quite morose with withered black stalks and drooping black heads facing east.

Our home for the next month, the rather fabulous Le Ramet. We are now speaking French all day every day so hopefully it will improve by the time we head back up north to Normandy

The chateau used to produce award winning Cognac, these plaques are remnants of that golden age.
