I have done a few of these already, but have given them several different names; from now they will all be ‘Round and About’ .
The weather has been pretty crummy over the past week; cold and damp, to the degree that I lit the fire and turned the radiators back on! I am still waiting for the delivery of the wire netting (all the way from Paris) for my vegetable garden, which is now promised for next Tuesday or Wednesday – hmmmm maybe! Due to the cold and lack of netting, there has been little gardening going on and even the painting of the ceiling trap door came to a halt. It was too cold to work with the door in the open position and it is difficult for me to paint when it is closed! Meanwhile the rabbits are still digging the vegetable garden for me!!
I discovered this quite small statue in one of the back streets of Montemboeuf
Montemboeuf literally means the mountain of the ox but I have to say this little chap looks more like an ox crossed with a hedgehog!
This is the sign outside the Montemboeuf Butchery and Charcuterie; the latter word means a delicatessen and a supplier of cooked pork products.
Sombody got carried away with the paintbrush in the back streets, but at least it's not the usual coarse big-city graffiti!
I have taken some other photos of interesting doors which I put on an earlier blog. I thought this was worth adding to the list, although there was no date on this one.
