Weekend 8


A slightly shorter addition this week as we had to nip over to the UK at the last minute, nevertheless we still managed to fit in a typical gourmet meal!
...and after!

If you are in Libourne on Saturday afternoon you should try and get a look at the procession of the Confreries through the town, starting at 14h30 at the quai du Priorat and heading into the town centre.  The robes and banners are often quite spectacular, I know that Castillon can put on a show, so I imagine Libourne would be more impressive.

If you want to catch a fish now’s the time and there are plenty of opportunities to choose from, see the excerpt from Le Resistant :

Have a good weekend, the temperatures are rising and the snow just feels like a memory…

Best wishes,

And finally this looks really interesting… I shall certainly link to the website.  Good luck Sue…

I have created a website/blog aimed at people who speak English and garden (or dream about gardening) in France. It is targeted at people who grow vegetables, keep chickens/bees and are smallholders as well as those who are into flowers, trees and shrubs. Initially it will be a blog with the opportunity to interact via our Facebook page (The French Garden) but I plan to develop it into an interactive resource. As well as being something people can read, it will be an opportunity to advertise events, take part in forums, swap and test recipes and ways of preserving food you grow, ask questions and contribute – an on line gardening magazine for people who start to garden in France and need information or who want to share their own knowledge and experiences.
The website is currently very basic, and not yet perfect. I am looking for an internet expert to develop it with me in the longer term when we should be able to make the site itself interactive, have a library of information people can access and possibly use it as a vehicle for sourcing gardening/smallholding related products which are sometimes difficult to find here.
Please have a look at the web site; I would be very interested to know what you think. And if you know someone who could help me run the website/facebook page please let me know. And above all, I would be very grateful if you would help spread the word.
The web link is
Many thanks
Sue Adams
