Sunflowers bloom in the Dordogne

This is a wonderful time of year. Despite the drought the fields and gardens continue to bloom and both traveler and resident can’t help but be delighted by the colourful fields of sunflowers.

Star of Zanzibar

The beautiful ‘Star of Zanzibar’ tropical water-lily we bought from the famed Latour-Marliac nursery has flowered wondefully this summer. Now in its second year it has made good growth in the new larger tub so hopefully next year will be ready to move into the newly puchased water-trough.
