The Manoir at the end of a long drive

Happy Monday.

I thought I would tell you about the picture I have as my blog picture.

We absolutely love our life in France and adore our little house, although it didn't tick any of our boxes when we bought it but we are very comfortable with it now, it's not posh, just a terraced house in a largish village with such lovely neighbours and it needs a new roof 😭 which I don't think we will ever be able to afford.

So back to this picture, every time we travel the road to Aldi we pass this long sweeping drive which has a white house at the end, I have often wondered who lives in a house like this and sometimes I daydream about being the lady of this very special manoir but it is only a dream sadly, anyway on our last shopping trip I thought I would take a photo of this wonderful place, I can now daydream any time I like, just look at the gorgeous colours of the leaves, I just love this time of year.
Ah well better do the euromillions this week, you never know. I do hope the owners won't mind me using it. zoom in to see the real beauty of the house.

This is my rather large Christmas cactus which hasn't flowered for years, someone suggested I put it outside so it has been out all summer, it really loved it outside out of direct sunlight I am hoping it will decide this is the year it will flower, if anyone has any ideas as to what it needs do let me know.

My beautiful fuscia is still flowering which is keeping some welcome colour in an otherwise dreary garden.

Vive la France .... la vie en france.
