The heat rising.

Our day starts with a whoop and a scream. There are Jackdaws on the lawn .

Down to the valley floor for a paddle in the stream then back across the fields for breakfast. No doubting that the chill wet weather has finally gone. It's already warm. The sunflowers that were planted out last week have taken root. Give them a month and they'll be three feet high and provide a magical forest for the angelic duo to play hide and seek in.

A strawberry tart with four macaroons placed on top catches our eye.

After all the start of day excitement Bob settles down at the front door to guard ... with his eyes closed.

Wonderful bagpipe music in France. A very Scottish tune 'Scots Wha Hae' said to have been played by Robert the Bruce at Bannockburn. The drums just after the minute mark are quite something and in this case a very gallic touch. The words '' Tyrants fall in every foe,  Liberty's in every blow, Let us do or dee " fitting for a military funeral  :

Angus, I hope you are not casting aspersions on my dear PON friend Bob's guarding abilities. It is well known that us dogs are very effective at keeping watch with our eyes closed.
Toodle pip!

Summer is arriving for you and winter is approaching our shores this weekend.

Bob and Sophie are so good at sitting for portraits. Please give them a big scruffy pat from us.

back in the Hutch with the weather only as Dunoon can put on (wetter and colder than Down Under's winter) so spending the first day back catching up - and am greeted here with bagpipes and Scottish tune (albeit with a French accent!) Whoever would have thought that blogging could be the anchor stablising one's days?! Thanks for being part of that. YAM xx

The YouTube label says it's the "marche des soldats" so perhaps that's why they used it. Very moving ceremony, and I spotted Sarkozy standing just behind Macron (I think).
Did the strawberry tart with embellishments go home with you?

The photo of Bob 'en guarde' would make a beautiful painting.
