Kate, Sarah and Michael

Chevreuil 013Kate has arrived for her few days in the Perigord and yesterday we spent a busy day, getting to know each other, visiting a friend, Sarah's, "potager" and having dinner with our friends, Michael and Mary.

Sarah grows enough vegetables to be able to operate a small "Vegetable Box Scheme" in the the Charente, and it was fascinating to tour her garden with her and feel her passion for the things she grows.

We then drove back through the Bordeaux rush hour traffic for a dinner the dinner with Michael and Mary.   Conversation over dinner was wide ranging but at one point Michael reminded me of his latest "catch"... a young deer in an area just outside our garden.   He let me have these two photos which I am happy to pass on.

This morning, we're off to Villereal after a quick tour of my garden.

Looking forward to seeing your part of the planet. I know Kate will be enjoying herself seeing France, I just wish we had all gone with her.
Please tell Kate I am watching Gardening Australia at the moment. Sophie Thompson is in the Adelaide Hills talking about herbs, I think you need more herbs in your garden Ian, your guests would love them. Have fun.
