View from the island

This is a view of Saint-Aignan's church from the south bank of the island in the Cher River. Not much to say except that it was a nice spring morning. The trees were just beginning to leaf out. I took this photo just over a week ago.

The bridge across the river is just behind the tree on the left. The château looms up on the right.

Monday was rainy most of the day. It was a very light rain, only two millimeters in the gauge. Our neighbors across the street had a family gathering, easily eight or ten cars altogether. It's too bad they had to stay indoors.


  1. Looks like a beautiful painting.

  2. river is flowing at a good clip there; I LOVE where you live!

  3. It's amazing to me, every year, when I look outside into our back yard, and see allllllll of the tree branches just barely starting to bud... and, I think to myself, "Soon, this will all be full of green!", and then, BOOM, the next thing I know, as I had just blinked and made it appear, everything is fully fluffed out with green everywhere--- just like that!

  4. stuart, merci.

    anne marie, me too, most of the time. ;)

    judy, and before it happens you think that it never will. I hope we all have a good summer this year!

  5. I can see why you fell in love with the place.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
