Panier of Plenty

Une Douceur Exceptionnelle

A warm spell has continued, as November proves to be exceptional… clear blue skies and the sun radiating heat to temperatures far beyond ‘expected’. Trees tell of autumn and the light has a different quality to it, yet basking, it could be spring. Dining out-of-doors and enjoying long balades, there is much to celebrate while marvelling at ‘la douceur’ in the Pyrénées-Orientales.

Unaware of the events that unfolded in Paris until this evening, I wish to extend heartfelt sympathies to the residents of Paris, and to all families and friends who have lost their loved ones, or are caring for them, and nurturing them back to health.
