2011 - My second year of blogging in Brittany

I felt I would like to share some of the photographs I have taken so far this year and some from other years. I live in a beautiful part of Brittany and just love being here. It's a lovely place to photograph and enjoy being in through all the seasons and hopefully this blog will show you where I live my life.

Tuesday 6 April 2010 - Wood sculptures and the Abbey at Bon Repos

Today, I drove back home from Silfiac and passed through the road from St Brigitte to Bon Repos and just had to stop to look at some incredible wood sculptures along the side of the road. I think the sculpter may be called Philippe Cormard. There were mushrooms, a seahorse, an enormous acorn and a similar sized nest with eggs.  There were huge, wonderful gnarled treetrunks lying on the ground, which I presume are the materials for future projects.

I then drove on to l'Abbaye de Bon Repos.  This is a really old building standing next to the Nantes Brest Canal.  over the bridge towards Laniscat.

Four French people were enjoying lunch in the sunshine on one of the tables on the grass alongside the canal. They started talking to me while I was taking photographs and we had quite a conversation before I got back into my car and drove over the bridge to Laniscat.

Along the road to Laniscat I stopped to look at a waterfall and fast flowing stream with gorse along the roadside.

My last stop was to look at pussywillow which was just breaking into blossom.

Three Beautiful Things:
1.   Playing bowls with friends after being absent for a few weeks.
2.   Seeing my new fruit bushes and cherry tree finally planted.
3.   Coming home to a clean and tidy house after my cleaner has been busy.
