...I'm feeling very quiet these days...


maybe I could show some pictures of my surroundings instead?




The landscape around my house here in the heart of Brittany
the river with the Medieval bridge in the back
my house is hidden behind the trees on the left



Some of the hundreds wild daffodils in the garden




Early Spring in the back yard




harvesting birch sap



Mimosa in bloom



My knit and crochet space

  2. It looks so beautiful! It makes me want to move there. Are there any smallholdings for sale near you with a house like yours?

  3. Love your blog and seeing your beautiful surroundings. Your collecting of birch sap is intriguing. What do you use the sap for?

    1. Thank you Pallas,
      I collect the birch sap to drink it, it taste slightly sweet.
      I do it every year around the middle two weeks of March and drink it fresh.
      There are a lot of health claims associated with Birch sap,
      it is known as an excellent spring tonic.
      This year I will also make a fermented beverage with birch sap and honey: a mead.
