Mr. DeMille...

I'm ready for my close-up. If Saint-Aignan's château were Nora Desmond. So here is the close-up. It's the western end of the Renaissance wing, seen with the telephoto lens from the island in the river. But I'm sure you already knew that.

The detail on the upper windows is amazing.

It looks like we're coming out of a rainy period. I'm not going to get the grass cut today, but I am thinking that Monday will work. By the way, I'm playing along with Jim's A-Pic-A-Day-In-May challenge. It's not really a challenge for me since I post a picture a day anyway. But still. Check his blog out if you get a chance!


  1. ooooooooooooh, strawberries! would be a great dessert with your hubby's roast pork with honey and spices!

    and yeah the window...but the mossy stones and the high point roof and the finials and the iron railing and...

  2. I'm aimimg at mowing Monday, too!
    That's if I can see where to mow...
    the speed of grass growth is tremendous.

  3. I'm hoping for mowing on Monday too...

  4. I've had to hire a mower...(wrist in cast).

    I'd love to be Nora and reside in that chateau...

    M in OR

    2. Merci, Walt. At least I've had barely any pain.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
