We are heading off for a couple of weeks for a much needed sojourn hopefully heading for the French and Italian Riviera's before Tout Le Monde descend.  Laptop and camera plus accoutrements will be accompanying me so I will be able to keep up with what your all up to, and keep you all posted.  See you there.

 Before I go I could not resist a few more garden shots, the Peonies and the English Roses had the grace to start flowering just before our departure, we will miss the best of them but our neighbours, who have kindly offered to water all the new shrubs and trees we have just planted to replace the casualties that did not survive the cold spell in February, have carte blanche to enjoy and pick what they like for their home, so glad they will be appreciated and not go to waste.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.


  1. Dear Dash,
    Bonne Route and if you are passing through...?

  2. Sounds wonderful - also sounds like it is an unplanned adventure as to exactly where you are going - my most favourite kind. Happy travels!

  3. I love the photos of your garden.
    It is so lovely.

  4. Sounds like a fun vacation plan to me, Dash. I can't wait to see your photos. Will be heading South myself in late June. Counting the days until I leave the land of flip-flops and arrive in the land of ballet flats :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  5. Oh how I needed this !
    It is grey and cold out and a long dreary holiday weekend ahead of us .. All I want to do right now is househunt online for our new home back in the US.
