Just along the road from my village is Grand Meynieux, a very old farming community, most of the inhabitants are retired but they keep wonderful vegetabale gardens or potagers. The gate here leads into the largest and most interesting, the guy who tends it when he's not working in it just sits amongst the plants enjoying just being there. Don't blame him a very calm peaceful place. I painted the view from the other side a few months ago, see it here.
