Spring Sun in the Dordogne
I took a day out last week and visited an area of the Dordogne I last saw about 20 years ago, back then we stayed in a large rambling house next to a farm with views of the sunflowers across the valley, well there would have been if there hadn't been a heatwave which all but destroyed the crop. I spent a lot of time filling my sketchbook and taking endless photos (very boring for the others) and generally falling in love with it all; the country, the food, the wine, the weather, the scruffyness of the old buildings, it goes on....
