The Scenic Route Home - Part 47

After a trip to the supermarket yesterday, I took the scenic route home.
Rapeseed is grown for the production of animal feed, also vegetable oil for human consumption.

Wheat about 8 cms (4 inches) high.


Grapes grow well in this region and they are just beginning to shoot.  We are not that far from the famous area of Cognac.

Who can resist this little chap? He made photos very difficult as he just wanted me to keep rubbing his ears!

  3. What a lovely drive. Your crops are farther along than ours. This kind of scenery makes even chores a delight to do. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  5. ONESTONEDCROW - I am sure you will look that cute, he really was a darling. This is the first field I have seen of rape in full flower, the farmer must have planted early.

  6. Becca - I could not wish for a more peaceful place to live. It is always so quiet here. The odd plane passes over but that is about it. Diane

  11. What lovely photos and the animals look so content and placid. The last time we were in the La Rochelle area they made the poor creatures wear kind of gingham pyjamas. It was supposed to be some sort of old tradition but really it was for the tourists. They didn't wear pyjamas when we were there ten years before !!

  13. Hi Jean, I hate any animal dressed up it is so un-natural. This donkey I saw at a riding school just down the road from us. He was a happy litttle chap. Diane
