Yesterday Ebène and I left Mr O. installing his million litre rain water catchers and set out to feed the ducks and geese then have a look about town. It was so hot and I should have listened to the advice at home, 'you are going to be too warm with all of that on'- big camera with its macro lens, carrying bag for the little camera, dog poop bag, dog goodies and a little note book, everything seemed ungainly and heavy, I was getting cranky. I removed my light weight jacket tied it around my waist, opened my collar, turned up my sleeves, and even rolled up the bottom of my jeans, such a pretty sight and I thought, I think I miss Winter plus today I do not represent the Western woman well in my attire. The Sorgue is still high having risen considerably with the rain, those of you who have sat on the little stairs behind the church will understand just how high when I say three rungs are deep beneath ice cold water, ice cold I know because I slipped trying to lean out too far to get this 'morelle douce-amère' or 'solanum dulcamara' bush, happy there were was a step to land on. Have a great Sunday everyone, à demain.
