We came back last weekend from Brittany where we stayed with friends K and F who have been living in Plougourvest for ten years. This was our last visit as they are returning to the UK in September. I must just show you a glimpse of their lovely home and gardens. We are in such awe of their achievements in turning this old pig farm into a gorgeous, tastefully refurbished four bedroom house, complete with barns, porkery and outbuildings.
Their property is at the end of a mile long lane outside of the village and very remote
Farm fields surrounding them for as far as you can see
growing produce such as artichokes, cauliflowers and much much more
This is the first view you have when arriving
After our nightly barbecues we would stroll down to the bottom of their garden which is a good acre or more? (not sure what an acre looks like but its BIG!)
To the fast running stream which borders their property from the adjoining farmland
Cutting their huge lawn at the rear with their two sit-on mowers was beginning to take its toll so now they have left the middle to form a woodland meadow, attracting all manner of birds and insects.
The muddy rings in the cut lawn around the meadow are made by the moles - a nightly and frustrating occurrence - there would literally be approximately 20 or 30 new molehills each morning!
Foxgloves grow everywhere with gay abandon
Such a delight to wander these beautiful wooded areas
Our gentle stroll down through the meadow and gardens generally took about half an hour and we couldn't believe that it was still light at ten o-clock at night.
And so a return to their more formal gardens behind the house and a welcome glass of chilled wine to complete our evening!
Hope you enjoyed our evening strolls as much as we did
A big welcome to my new follower Sue at Beach bungalow
