Viaur Valley with our Old Camper

Just back from a 3 day trip out in our very old camper van to the Viaur Valley. Beautiful campsite by the river at Lagarde Viaur. Great little break - hard to believe it's only an hour and a half from home!


 Did an 11klm walk up one side of the river and back along the otherside
 Loads of brambles to be had on the way
 Well this makes our camper look very modern :)
 Beautiful wooded walkways
 Our old camper
 On the campsite 10 paces from our camper
 Blow and make a wish
Beautiful but very invasive Japanese Knotwood
 Glorious situation this house has
 Happy sheep
 Saw several Herons on the walk

Half Way through August

I love sitting with a glass of wine and listening to the water fall on the stones
 Second flowering of my only Delphinium, hoping for more next year
Belle du Jour such a lovely sweet scented two tone flower
 Needed to make a curtain to try and keep the heat at bay, worked fine but if windy looks like I have just hung out my washing.
 A new tote for my shop
 A  Holly Blue Butterfly, impossible to catch in flight to show the intense blue
Well this is a fabric that by choice I would never have chosen in a month of Sunday's. My sons choice for his camper.
 And another for the shop, although very tempted to keep just for me
Yes one for me just for a change
 A very long scarf
Penstemon seems to be a dwarf this year, last year it was twice the height, still very pretty.
A very Tweet Apron on it's way to meet it's new owner

And a delicious on the comb chunk of honey from my neighbour. I nearly added have a good weekend and then realised it's only Tuesday.... duh!!! but wishing you a Happy Weekend when it comes. xx
