And now Christmas approaches and the villages are starting to be decorated with lights and sparkles. Our little village has it’s own Christmas Fair in the Salon de Fête, an old stone building with a vaulted roof. Local artisans gathered to display their wares and the Grézelois turned out to support them and have a good gossip. We are not making a huge fuss at Christmas but there are a few gifts we need and we found some interesting presents which we took home to wrap up ready to post or deliver.

In the barn we are continuing to pack our stuff up as it isn’t practical to be in the potager or outside as the weather has been a bit wet, a good thing as October and November were dry which is apparently not usual. So the plants needed this and we hope for some more rain to replenish the rivers and wells. The temperature is mostly quite mild, there were a couple of frosty days in November but mostly it’s 3 or 4 degrees at night and between 7 and 10 during the day. So, we were rather surprised on one of the colder mornings this week to discover that on driving up to the ‘causse’, which is the tops of the hills, there was a sprinkling of snow. Not really much and it won’t last but it did look pretty. Perhaps a white Christmas this year? Checking the weather forecast it doesn’t look likely.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][postgallery_grid id=”grid_SS_G6_20171205_2″ data_source=”data-4″ null=”” slidesetid=”SS_G3_20171205_2″ content_type=”image” height=”200px” align=”aligncenter” lightbox=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”custom” accent_color=”#deead0″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Perhaps you would like to know…
