Another clear day

We're having a succession of clear, dry days. No clouds, certainly no rain. Each day the high temperature is a little higher. And it's expected to continue that way all week.

Looking easterly over the vineyards toward our hamlet and the Cher Valley at sunrise on Saturday.

The basil that's growing in pots on the deck is doing very well this summer. Yesterday I harvested a bunch of it and made pesto for today's lunch. I'll grill a couple of escalopes de veau (thin veal steaks) to have along side. A very summery meal!


  1. Your lunch sounds good. I hope you get some rain soon.

  2. In the foreground, is it a parcel that is left fallow or is it a former field of sun flowers?
    Talking about deck, when is it going to be redone? Or did
    I miss it?

  3. This photo seems to capture 'August" it made me smile.

  4. mitch, :)

    evelyn, and it was tasty, too!

    chm, that was a vineyard parcel, recently ripped up. The deck hasn't been done, yet. We're looking for a new contractor.

    judy, yes!

    michael, good!


Tell me what you think!
