Never is an awfully long time, Paul.OOh That's not fair, Colin..
It's hard to realise that we'll probably never experience such scenery again.
Have you been to Chenonceau Chateaux.. Mind blowing and wild camping outside
Thanks for the kind words, Bill, but I have to own up to the fact that we came out of the restaurant adjacent to the chateau and there was the opportunity just waiting to be taken.You often take great photos Colin, but the one of the castle above is really amazing.
Some cracking photos there, Marie.Lovely and sunny oop norf today.
Been busy in garden, here's some pics I took this morning. It's all I can post at the moment folks as I'm grounded for treatment over the next few months (and still sans van, but constantly looking!). But this is the weather thread, so I guess it's OK for me to still post? Can't post travel photos as only have what's on the doorstep.
Suffice to say most of my plants have survived the hammering of torrential rain and blustery winds - amazing really!
