The holidays begin.....

We love holidays, the chance to take a break and kick back with a glass of wine in the sun whilst the children play happily (mostly!).  However, when we happened upon this little market in Rochefort our eyes lit up.  The French are experts when it comes to their produce markets with row upon row of jewelled fruits and vegetables, melons stacked high and crepes sizzling away.  My husband spent quite some time at the sausage stall before picking out the ones that tempted him the most, which was all of them, but the line had to be drawn at four!

The next week or so was spent dreaming of how we could introduce Snowdrop Cottage to the streets of Southern France whilst living in an idyllic bleached blue shuttered country farmhouse conversing with the locals and swimming in the rivers.  Who knows, maybe one day!  However, it was soon time to load the car up and head back to reality, hopefully it won't be long until we return again and start a new French adventure.


Safely back home Mr Snowdrop surprised me with this gorgeous bouquet of flowers from our lovely friend Jac  for my birthday.  Jac grows her flowers just a couple of miles from Snowdrop Cottage and sells them at Whiteladies Road and The Shambles Market, Stroud, we think they're rather special.

We're turning our attention to the next few months ahead and will be shortly posting details and dates for our workshops which we're very excited about so keep your eye out for our updates!
