These furry bumblebees seem to have taken up residence in the living room shutters. Being of hollow construction I guess they where just the right size for the bees to fit in.
We have the windows open and the bees come and go. They come into the room only occassionally and don’t bother us much. Will have to keep an eye on the size of the colony though, as the summer goes on.
Having not used the car since Saturday I opened the boot yesterday to find a wasp had started to build it’s home inside the hinge at the top of the door. I’m glad I caught it before its family had really taken off.
Objat is a pleasant little town in the Corrèze that is renowned for it’s Sunday market. There’s plenty of parking space and the market wends it’s way through the town streets to the market hall. Here they have vegetables, flowers, bedding plants and some poultry, guinea pigs, cage birds and rabbits. Outside there’s the usual shoes and clothes for sale along with plenty of cheese and meat stalls, fresh cooked chickens and huge pans of paella and potatoes fried in duck fat with lardons and onions. There are plenty of shops and cafe bars open too. Here’s a few snaps from this morning’s visit, I’m sure we’ll be going back again soon.
