Hot weather has come back, and long range predictions are for a hot summer here in France. We'll see.
Meanwhile, it's rose season here in Saint-Aignan. I've enjoyed photographing flowers over the past few weeks.
One reason I've enjoyed it is that I'm still trying to learn how to use the camera I took these with.
Some of these roses are in a neighbor's yard. The house sits unoccupied most of the time. The owner lives in the Paris area.
I'm glad to be able to post these photos, because we are having unusual problems with our internet connection. One minute it works, the next minute it doesn't. Whatever the phone company is doing to our DSL signal seems to have disabled the modem/router that we normally use. Luckily, I have an old router that seems to work a little better, but even with that one the signal comes and goes.
