Still raining in the Limousin!

Well, I have to report that it's still raining here in France.
Most unusual for our neck of the woods at this time of year, but I guess that's what we can expect after months of drought during the Spring.
Not that I'm complaining mind you, although I know many who are!
Like the poor girl in the bricolage store this morning who is desperate for a little summer warmth.
The beans & tomatoes have slowed considerably, but on the plus side, the potatoes are loving the rainy days & they are big enough to make good Jacket Spuds from.
The price of petrol in France seems to be on the up again.
It had come down a little recently, but this morning, when I filled up with 95 octane, it was 1.55 euros a litre and I passed a filling station that had there's at 1.64 euros a litre.
Bastille day came & went without to much noise. It was raining, so I expect that kept a fair few indoors.
The French summer holidays are upon us now though, & the A20 autoroute to the sun that runs from the North to the South coast of France has become much busier.
Time to relax at home & tend the garden methinks!
Have a good week.
