21/10/2016 Not a good day for photos but......

Maximum temperature 17C, minimum 3C.  17 km/h NE wind. Dry.
Driving through Taponnat-Fleurignac....

Towards La Rochefoucauld with the chateau in the distance.

Shopping at Brico...

Chrysanthemums on sale.  All Saints' Day, the 1st of November, sees families gathering to visit cemeteries to clean and decorate tombs.  And they decorate them mainly with chrysanthemums.  Never give these flowers as a gift in France!!!

Various pot-plants for sale

Mr Sparrow...

and his wife in hiding!.
