So I think I will start with Jennie's week 1 View for May - well it is raining...are we surprised?
But since we left the cherry blossom tree has flowered and the bird tree cherry is also in flower. The willow tree is in leaf too. The tulips have nearly finished and you can see we have our mini green houses up, though we arrived home to find one had been blown away with the winds!!
From our kitchen window...same kind of view but a dull day !!
Now onto challenge week 2 from Anne who asks use what do we do that makes us enjoy life?
Silver Linings Month 5 is E for ENJOY - to take delight or pleasure or to make a pleasant time.
Well having been away for Anne's week it was easy to do as we were away on holiday!
Since retiring I so enjoy life! The big enjoyment is to have holidays when ever I want!
Peter and I have just spent 2 weeks in Brittany (Bretagne for Anne) It was the first time for Peter and my first time on the N coast for me). We have had a wonderful time...as we always do together :) and here are some photos to share with those of you who haven't see them on Facebook! Two collages of our accomodations
week 1 on the pink granite coast N Brittany
week 2 nr Locudey and Leconsil SW Brittany
Anne we love France, driving is so easy and the people so friendly too!!
Here is a collage of a typical french market
I just love all the bags and baskets they sell and of course I had to purchased a couple!!
Of course Brittany are known for their crepes. How I enjoyed both sweet and savoury crepes! Here I am eating the first of many!!
We both enjoy our food and here you can see how much we enjoyed meal times, eating our self catering and picnicing too!
Now to show you photos of other things we enjoyed, walking the cliffs, sitting in warm sunshine, watching the fishing boats bringing in their catch
