The sun is shining and the sky is blue, but the icy cold Northerly wind is doing its very best to make life miserable! Not too much activity outside today.
Last night's dinner, Lapin Chasseur, accompanied by potatoes, Jerusalem Artichoke (from the garden) with garlic and green beans with cashew nuts, was quite delicious and we still have plenty for tonight.
I took this picture of a friendly little bee a couple of days ago. I say friendly as he was not interested in my movements, thankfully, as I am allergic to bees! In the cold and windy weather today, he is probably trying to find a well-protected tree with plenty of blossom. I am still wondering what the interest was for him in a cactus plant!
The search for wire netting to protect the vegetable garden (hopefully) against the wild rabbits has been successfully concluded. Today we ordered the netting online and I now need to wait for it to be delivered. Next step is to put it up, which will include burying enough into the ground to stop the rabbits digging under it. As Nigel will be back in the UK by the time it arrives, I may have to ask David to give me a helping hand. He has not much spare time at present as with his two sons (well one, the other is not so keen on manual labour!) he is putting in a swimming pool.
This evening we are all off to Octavie for aperitifs so we will hear the latest episode on the swimming pool.
