    Hubby was presented on Friday with another award for the flowers in the garden for the third consecutive year, at a reception at the Mairie.
    The award is in the category "Walls and Windows 2010". For those who haven't seen them, here are the photos I posted in July

    And these photos were of the flowers in 2009.

    I don't know about a certificate, I think he deserves a Gold Medal!

    And when he has that lot under control, would he like a challenge in Ireland, for a change?

    He loves Ireland, especially the fuchsia hedges! We used to cultivate and sell the exotic hanging fuchsias, and some hardy uprights, during our first 10 years here in France. But he prefers our longer summers!

    oh and I thought I had a lot of flowers but you outdo me these are fantastic. I think your husband should get a reward for all his creativity.

    How wonderful that his talent is recognized! I reviewed the pictures and enjoyed them immensely because we are cold and cloudy here right now! How many days until Spring?

    I looked at the pictures, they are so beautiful. He certainly has a green thumb. I know that takes a lot of work.
