The day when the regional judges are due to come and judge the flower beds. Will they decide that the village warrants a rosette ?
The mayor and the ladies of the Beautiful Byeways Committee are up early. We see them filling watering cans as we return from our early morning walk. Bob is also keen to help water the plants but is dissuaded from doing so.
There is some uncertainty as to whether the judges will arrive at ten or at noon. The little lady in the purple hat took the message but she can't be found. The assumption is she's gone off to the local market.
Melons - en masse - make an appearance in the greengrocers.
The variety of onions on offer continues to grow.
Munster cheese with Cumin seeds. They seem to add Cumin seeds to all sorts of cheese. Must be one of those old country things like Chicory added to Coffee to make it go further.
So starts a day of great excitement here in deepest, deepest France profonde.
