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 : https://youtu.be/bqdqV2Llsuc
