On my holidays in the land of Aquarelle. Lovely.

Welcome to beautiful France. Hope you have a really lovely holiday. Are you by any chance in the south wesr?
Up in the North, I'm afraid. Same area as Rach. The weather's lovely though. Just trying to decide if we can be bothered to go all the way to the beach today, as we went to Bruges yesterday. Maybe tomorrow.

I have made a bee garden full of plants for pollinators, and having seen this, my nextdoor neighbour has just announced that he is going to get a bee hive and do bee keeping! smile.png

Merlimont has one of the best beaches in the north, if you feel like the drive.

Yesterday I went to a concert. I was so tired I nearly didn't bother but it was part  of the local church fĂȘte so I dragged myself along. I didn't even know what sort of music it was to be. It turned out to be a male voice choir - about 50 men, most of them well over forty. They wore red T shirts with an embroidered badge black trousers and black berets - also with the badge. The repertoire was mainly Basque and BĂ©arnaise folk songs, plus one or two sacred items.  This is not a repertoire I know and not top of my list of music I enjoy but it was so well done I loved every minute. I had seen my brother off the day before after his two weeks here so was feeling a bit down. Their singing really raised my spirits. They obviously loved what their music. I was a bit sorry that none of my piano pupils were there - they might have learnt a great deal about dynamics and phrasing!
