France update

I’m writing now from La Ferme de Rouffignac, a foie gras farm near Bellac in Limosin. Of all the farms and chambres d’hotes (B&Bs) we’ve stayed at so far, it is my least favourite – too commercial and lacking in character for my taste – but it has wifi (or as the French say, “wee-fee”). we have had some lovely stays, including one in an 11th century former poorhouse, and another in a 16th century farmhouse with an ancient carousel horse in our room. Tonight we are staying near Sarlat-la-Caneda on a farm along the footpath of Saint Jacques de Compostelle.

Now about the gardens. We’ve been to many, but my husband is standing over me, urging me to get going, so I’ll have to write about them later. For now, I’ve posted a couple of sample shots to whet your pallette. A bientot!
