The pissenlits are overtaking the grass and there are plenty of other mauvais herbes to be dealt with as well .... (I love these French words for weeds!)'s been two years since the last Carnavale so, on one Friday evening, le maire gives the keys of Guémené to the participants, and the next day, the streets are crowded with floats, clowns and performers.

Meanwhile, up the hill, Jean-Yves is taking his cows to fresh fields.  He has a red flag (as well as the red overalls) to stop such traffic as may be on this main road which by-passes Guémené. were many evenings on the terrace, with Sally and Mimi a picnic on the shores of the Golfe du Morbihan June, the roses were beginning to flower, and the clematis was promising to climb over the gateway, but it was time for me to leave.
