A room with a view or two.

Today Susan is hosting Outdoor Wednesday #31 over at
and so I would like to show you the views from one of our guest bedrooms in the 16th century part of our home, here in the middle of the French countryside.

This is the bedroom...................we call it the "Bishop's" because, so the story goes, when the Bishop of Bayeux visited the 12thc church across the way he would be given this bedroom to sleep in.
The views from the windows may have changed since the 1700's but not very much.

Looking over the walled garden into the field beyond, on the left you can just see a brown & white cow almost hidden by the blue hibiscus tree that I mentioned in my Blue Monday blog.

My potager at the back of the house where I grow organic vegetables. This year I planted green and yellow French haricot beans, English Scarlet Runner beans, old and new potatoes, courgettes, onions, beets, heirloom tomatoes and blueberries..

The field on the other the side of the house after hay making last week, see the big rolls of hay waiting for collection.
Hope you have enjoyed the view and thanks for visiting Le Presbytére.
