Riding the heatwave

It has been so unbearably hot for the past couple of months that when the rain finally came it felt like pure bliss. At the moment we have six horses crazing the land and there has been no grass growing for weeks. Nothing but the annoying horse flies buzzing around in  the desperate heat. Now we’ve finally had a few drops of rain, I am so pleased to see some green shoots of grass coming through. During this heatwave I’ve enjoyed the amazing sunsets, bringing a cooling relief to the end of each scorching day. Thank goodness the new patio has been finished in time to enjoy those rare cool moments. There is more heat to come but I’m getting ready and excited to see what we will find in France in this extraordinarily hot summer 😊
