Summer’s back!

It may be officially Autumn, but summer is definitely de retour ! It has been glorious for 3 days now and is predicted to continue all week. Our gite guests are back around (and in) the pool soaking up the rays! We’ve decided to make a final trip of the year to the seaside tomorrow – apparently is is going to be 28 degrees at Ile de Re where we are planning to go.

Our Brugmansia (Angel’s trumpet) is benefiting from the late season rays too. We cut it right back over the winter and had almost given it up for dead in June when it finally decided to sprout. It has been a bit behind since then, but it has definitely been worth the wait…










There are dozens more to come, but they are probably a couple of weeks from flowering, so let’s hope the good weather continues and we can see this wonderful plant in all its glory!
