29/02/2016 A trip into La Rochefoucauld and a few 'through the window shots' in both the car and at home.

Maximum temperature 5C, minimum -2.  A very icy 52 km/h N wind.  Dry.
Rail bridge over the road to La Rochefoucauld.

Fuel prices; gazole (diesel) still under a Euro a litre.

Leclerc supermarket.

Shopping trollys!

Taponnat.

Nearly home.

Blue tit.

Great tit.

Female sparrow. 

As above.

  1. Hi Diane,
    Well you certainly have better weather than I do here!
    About the peacocks, funny you mention them being noisy in Rhodesia... There was one from a neighboring farm in Joburg's green belt who perched sometimes on our parrots aviaries, boy the panic he created!! LOL!
    Keep well and enjoy your evening :)

    1. Our weather is horrible!!! It is either icy cold or raining!! I can imagine how the parrots would react to screeching peacocks!! Thanks for the comment and I hope all is going well for you, hugs Diane

    1. Hi Stewart the trolly shot was a spur of the moment photo and I also liked it when I downloaded it. The blue tits are always cute, but they will be gone soon and we will only see them again next winter :-(( Diane

  3. Pretty interesting view of the shopping carts. I will have to treat them with a whole new level of respect from now on!

  5. The low petro prices are amazingly wonderful. I'm surprised to see it that low in Europe.

    I'm always surprised by the contrast in your photos of the old neighborhoods with modern vehicles. Somehow I expect to see horse drawn wagons.

    Great shot of the trolleys and I always love seeing your birds.

    Nice to have a day of no rain.

    1. We always have much lower prices than the UK where diesel is more expensive then petrol. We have had another (almost) dry day but oh so cold again! The trolleys were a really lucky shot and have gone down well :-) Keep well Diane
