A few days ago we had a nice foggy morning. It was nice because the fog didn't last too long. It lifted by about 10 a.m. and the day turned out to be warm and sunny.
The photos just above and just below show our back yard, where Callie will enjoy spending a lot of her time over the next four or five months (if the weather stays dry).
Below, a line of poplars cuts into the sky behind a vineyard plot just outside our back gate.
When it's foggy and the moisture condenses on spiders' webs, we can see just how many there are in and around the vineyard, and how elaborate some of them are.
It rained overnight, but I'm not sure how much. Now it's supposed to be dry for about another week. There's plenty of work left to be done out in the yard and garden. I often write about the vegetable garden this time of year because gardening is a major part of the Loire Valley lifestyle. Everybody seems to have one. This is, after all, le jardin de la France.
