Week 12 2016


Friday evening took us to a wonderful photo exhibition in Gensac.  Held in the beautiful vaulted gallery chez Mr Penny we viewed a collection of photos from the photoclub de la Dureze.
Subjects ranged from architecture to nature to portraits – impossible to choose a favourite!  
The exhibition is on display at the Mediateque de Gensac from 18th March – 30th April.  Free entry, pop over and have a look.

Whatever you do in the Gironde and Dordogne regions this week, have a great time.

Best wishes,

And finally…

Now’s the time to set your hornet traps.  They are easy to build and amazingly successful, just don’t empty them out, top them up with more bait, it’s true, nothing seems to be more effective at attracting another hornet, than a trapped one!  Though the first traps should be laced with a mixture of beer, dry white wine and syrup (grenadine flavour is good, but any sweet syrup will work).  The beer and syrup attract the hornet and the white wine will repel the bees.
