Many phonecalls from
Over the winter there had been a great deal of reconstruction going on in the centre of Guémené (seen here from the attic window).
An excellent new fountain of fine granite now graced the lower part of the place Bisson.
The flags were out on either side of the war memorial, Bastille day was not far off, and red and pink geraniums were flowering profusely in baskets and pots everywhere.
With the striped canvas awning extended, the character of the shop suddenly took a turn for the better.
At the back, the iron railings were being installed on the terrace, just in time before several days of rain set in.
The long-awaited machine to cut out the driveway finally arrived…………………
and the excess dirt was used to level out the back garden. Now for some serious planting………….
Luckily Emily had arrived to do just that!
and to see
Guémené’s annual festival Andouille
which is held in August.
