Château de Fleurigny





Travelling on the country roads in France
always brings lovely surprises.
Not too far from where our daughter lives
are several Châteaux worthwhile visiting.




Having said that we didn't actually visit
Château de Fleurigny
as there were only six of us on the day
and the minimum number to gain entrance was fifteen.
As it is in the middle of nowhere
it was highly unlikely we would find
another nine people to make up the numbers that day!

I was able to take a few photos and then we
moved on to another Château which I will show
you in a future post!




I've been away from my blog for two weeks
because of issues at work....

I was sorry to miss Donna's 
"Still Life" Photo Challenge this month.
I've been out today taking loads of tree pics for 
the November challenge!

I'll be catching up on visiting your blogs this week
and I'm looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to!


I'm joining
Judith for Mosaic Monday
and the girls at
Thank you to the hosts.


Take care and 
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt

France Fences - Part 2




I've rarely seen a plain ordinary fence in France!





You can only just see the fence amid the riot of flowers!
I snapped this one in my daughter's back garden
after hanging the washing on the line!
A stone wall with a garden and small fence behind.






I'm joining 
Judith for Mosaic Monday
Theresa for Good Fences
Nick for Floral Friday Fotos.

Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt

Beautiful Fences of France






On my trips to France my trusty Panasonic Lumix camera
is always with me.
Prior to blogging most of the photos I took
involved people, family mainly.

How things have changed!
Now I take more photos of fences, gates, doors and windows
than I do of people!





I see photo ops everywhere I go...
I'm always lagging behind
because I've stopped to photograph
another rose covered fence or two!
Does that happen to you?






I couldn't walk past this fence, now could I?
especially as I'm so fond of roses....
and just look at the lovely old shutters in the background
another favourite subject of mine.
You would be surprised at the different
styles of shutters there are!
Hmm... I think I feel another post developing!!!


I'm joining Theresa for Good Fences
and
Tricia for Floral Friday

Enjoy your weekend 
thank you so much for your visits!

Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt
