More from the Sologne

I'm not sure where this photo was taken, but it might be in the small town of Mennetou-sur-Cher. I know we were there with our California friends back in 2006 and spent a little time wandering around in the old center.

A pretty street scene, possibly in Mennetou-sur-Cher, May 2006.

Ken and I really enjoyed our lunch of moules et frites (mussels and fries) yesterday. It was so good that I'm thinking of going over to a neighboring town's market on Friday for some more. That market has at least three fish mongers and I'll do some comparison shopping. Ken's blog post for today has some photos of our lunch.


  1. Glorious rose bush. I’m wondering if it’s Gloire de Dijon.
    Moules marinière, any time!

  2. That is indeed a glorious climbing rose!

  3. Oh, your fries and green beans looked yummy, too. What is the neighboring town whose market you will visit?

  4. I like the interesting brickwork in the front! I probably would have stopped to take a photo there, too! Such an attractive yellow rose giving the entrance to this dwelling real curb appeal!

  5. mitch, I think the yellow roses make it.

    chm, you know flowers better than I do... and yes! Moules!

    evelyn, :)

    judy, it's Montrichard, also on the Cher River.

    mary, I like them, too. I should have something like that in front of our house!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
