The 'S' word

I'm almost too scared to pronounce it. S ... Su.... Summer.... There, I said it. Phew. But I think it is fair to say that all risk of frost (and hopefully snow) has now passed. At 9pm this evening it was still 21 degrees. COME ON! For the first time this year, we have enjoyed the terrasse in the evening - wonderfulIt's set to get hotter over the weekend with temperatures possibly up to 30 degrees on Sunday.

But in the meantime, we had a hot, sticky and decidedly sweaty afternoon clearing some more of the wood that fell during the snows just over 2 weeks ago (crikey, what weird weather that was). We now have enough stockpiled to see us right for 2-3 months next winter. Against nearly every tree we have stacked various lengths of wood that will dry so quickly in the summer heat. We still have more to clear, so I don't think we need have any worries about running short.

My niece and her family live in Cazeres. When my son and I visited last summer, we could see the Pyrenees from her house.
I will come back to visit your blog (if you don't mind) to see what is going on. None of my family blog so I am always happy to see recent pictures of France.

It is stunningly beautiful, yes! Views from both sides of the house are amazing. It's a special environment and the house is for sale!! Know anybody who is looking for a Pyrenean bolt hole, by any chance?
