Summer in the Charente-Maritime

Bee's making the most of the sunflowers

August has been a lovely month at La Verderie, it has been hot and sunny with a gentle breeze. The sunflowers have been flowering all month but are nearly over now and BeBop has tested the maize and declared it ready to eat. 

We have been sailing every week at Royan and working hard on the house and gallery.

Culli's band, The Billy Whizz Band played a great gig at the campsite at Bignac last Wednesday, an idyllic spot by the lake.

We have had some lovely Chambres D'hotes guests and my old college mate Kim to stay and the first of the two summer open studio's was yesterday.
