Berry Picking

Thanks for your guesses folks! It is actually blackberry season here in the 77th department, and there is a huge bramble patch at the end of our road which was untouched by human hand.... until I arrived! This village seems to be full of people who spend their time driving to and fro everywhere (usually Paris) or in their beautiful house/garden so there are very few people wandering the streets and doing such mundane things as picking berries. No problem, all the more for us!
I picked nearly a kilo last week but somehow we managed to eat them all before they got into a pie....oops! So this time I enrolled Bertie to help as we streeeetched for all the higher ones.
Look at those delicious berries, who could resist them?Well, we exerted all our self'-discipline (helped by Tatie's stern eye!) and here is the result that she threw together. I am off to enjoy it now!

Hi Heather and Co! It is good to know you are back on this side of the atlantic! Come and visit us! You are so close! Maybe we'll come and see you guys instead.... there are fewer of us to organise! What is the plan for France? Is Bertie going to be teaching there? Are you staying for a while??
Much love from Stuart, Jude and I :) (and bump... getting bigger!)
