Its been horrid for friends, this last bout of heavy rain. Max had a flood, everyone has a water story though most are merely inconviences. OB and Aileen have been hardest hit - flooded out of their home - they are determined to stay and watch their beasts and try to salvage what they can.
Here is the afternoon sky, clearly brightening. Much love to them.
On Saturday, before the rain, Susie was burnt out and lost everything. Her life and the lives of her children were mercifully spared. There is a fund to help them; heres the link, do what you can :)

Back from Avignon where we had a great holiday with old chums and new art.
In Esperaza the town fete carried on without us; this morning, wetish, they are packing up. I was very charmed by the cut-out pictures of mirrored balls hung over the bar...
Suns coming out:)

Etienne and his grandmama Lily; tres mignon:)
Where is she now, anyone know? Last heard of in Port Vendre - but I digress.
The Gallery is a wonderful resturant, it was full and the food is terrific though its roughly the price of Gaydar's friday special so it should be good:) I had fresh salmon in blanquette after thin marinated beef and before homemade nougat icecream. Hmm.
Bob and I are trying to catch up with our various tasks after last weeks' extravaganza's.

Here is the railway line, looking in need of a trim. It does function, very well - just looks disused.
