After the storm
We had the most amazing electrical storm last night here in the Languedoc. It had felt hot and heavy all day so when eventually the low angry rumbling started in the distance it was a relief. We stood on the terrace and watched the entire skyline lighting up vividly and startling forks of blinding light hitting the hills in the distance.
This morning it was beautifully fresh, the flowers invigorated by the rain and the Pyrenees unusually clear in the distance. It was promising to be a scorcher.
Today we have new guests arriving and I am thrilled that they are going to view Le Chateau and the area in such pretty weather. I am currently deciding how best to serve up His Lordships hat which he promised to eat should I obtain one single solitary booking through this blogging malarky. Well we now proudly have a member of Purplecoo If you have not yet met this spendid band of bloggers do pop in and say 'Hi'.
2b and I rushed off to the local town of Castelnaudary which has the famous Canal du Midi running through it. On the way back he snapped this field of poppies. I'm introducing him to the art of photography. Think I'll keep him away from blogging for a while longer though !!
