Let the festivities begin….

Sorry for the lack of posts of the last few weeks it’s been a busy time here in Fayssac with Kev and I popping back and fro to London and lots of renovations happening in the house.

The last few weeks have been very cloudy and drizzly but there is always beauty to be found, even in the drabbest of weather. This time last year the countryside was just a mix of browns as no crops had been planted. But this year the farmers and mother nature have obviously realised that we all need a bit of colour in the winter, and the fields are blanketed with a beautiful green carpet of grass and mother nature has had a word with the oak trees and asked them to slow down losing their leaves. It’s nearly the end of December and their leaves have only just turned to amazing shades of yellow and gold which really does add a shot of colour to the horizon.

And the last few days the cloud has blown away and left us with stunning blue skies and festive frosty mornings.

I have been busy festivating [is that a word?no? well it is now] the house in readiness for our Christmas guests.

Holly and mistletoe have been purchased from our local market.

They have been added to our festive arrangements to add a shot of colour.
