Life's lessons - #1 and #2.
It rains all day. The gale that brought down the gutters also moved some of the roof tiles. We only discover this when a small torrent of water bursts through the ceiling . Lesson #1 in life : You can never have enough buckets. The PON's think this is great fun.
The angelic duo celebrate the arrival of wet weather by rearranging the garden. They chew bamboo, laurel bushes and bay trees. They also continue to excavate the hole where Sophie found the irrigation pipe.
Despite the rain ( and their owners calls to come indoors ) Bob and Sophie settle down in the orchard for a post lunch nap. There is no word in the English ( or any other ) language to describe how wet they become. The washer and drier run 24/7. Lesson #2 in life : You can never have enough dog towels.
The ladies of the Village Fleuri Committee have readied the war memorial for the July 14th celebrations. This year there is a red, white and blue theme to the plantings.
