11/07/2017 In the garden with a hoopoe and a trip to the local village to play French scrabble.
Maximum temperature 25C, minimum 13C. 12 km/h SW winds with 16 km/h gusts. 10mm rain measured this morning.
One of my favourite birds the Hoopoe (pronounced hu-pu; I hear it called so many strange things!). It was quite far so I decided that the photos would be better smaller in a collage
This was probably the best photo.
Mrs Sparrow (Passer domesticus)...
Our local village of Vitrac...
The same church as I put on the blog two days ago taken from the other side....
The village well is in the front of the photo.
At the back of the church is the Mairie (Mayor's office) and War memorial hidden by trees at the moment.
I saw this Small White butterfly in the lavender just outside the church, I only had the little pocket size Samsung L201 with me so not up to usual standard.
A house centipede which I know most people shudder at, but they really are the good guys as they eat the spiders. Bet its mother thinks it is beautiful ha ha.
