Week 16 2013


Hooray, the sun is shining and we’ve been out enjoying the spring weather.  We went over to the Spring market in Pomerol to have a look and get some ideas for the garden.  It was great to be out and about in the 25 degree sunshine!

The bees are settling in, and there’s plenty of activity around the hives.  So far so good…

Keep enjoying the beautiful weather when you are out and about in the Gironde and Dordogne area, and please let me know of any upcoming activities.

Have a good week,

Best wishes,

Whilst visiting the Spring market in Pomerol it was lovely to see that the vines were beginning to shoot, but what are these little capsules added to the vines?  Why are they there and what are they for?
