Autumn Work.

It is now starting to feel like autumn as the first measurable rain for some considerable time fell overnight with thunder and lightning, so perhapsa the garden will change from looking like a desert landscape and return to more mellow greens. This has forced me to do some work indoors this morning so I choose to put a video on the Valley de Poupet. It is an area of the Haut Bocage that I particularly like, it combines a beautiful valley along the Sevre Nantaise River, a watermill with its adjacent weir, a camp site and the Vendees largest outdoor music theater.
