Week 32 2017

For the curious amongst you, the sculptures/statues featured last week can be found behind the chateau at the top of the hill in Pujols.

This week, out and about I saw these beautiful flowers in the square at Villefranche de Lonchat.  I haven't been yet, but I hear there's a great night market there on a Friday.

Whatever you do in the Gironde and Dordogne region this week, have a great time.
Best wishes,
PS : I have a feeling I've forgotten something for this weekend - please let me know if you have something that you want to add, or if you know what I've forgotten...😉
