Lavender’s blue, lavender’s green – lavende est bleu, lavende est vert

33 North west 6pm

In early July 2016, we went over to La Maison Bois, to spend our first proper holiday there, i.e. one that didn’t involve a lot of work.  This meant that for the first time we were really able to enjoy the house and use as a holiday home.  We only had 2 weeks because our first guest were due to arrive on 16th July.  Unfortunately, there was a few bits and bobs that we needed to do to satisfy Gite de France and to get it ready for the first guests. One of the most important things was to get the entrance to the house looking more welcoming.  We started this by creating a flower bed at the front, which we then planted with lavender.  The creamy stone and lavender combination is seen throughout France, but probably because it works so well!

Tom also put up our sign a number, 11 bis is official.  The lovely blue number is a great improvement on the piece of wood that we had before.  Hopefully, it will be easier to find now as well.

Well, it just had to be didn’t? It was all about finding a decent version!
