FRANCE...A Dream Comes True!!...continues...(3)

I have such great memories of my visit to the french countryside and one of the highlights was sitting in R's beautiful garden watching her two cats and hens enjoying every corner of this pretty environment. R's two hens, Tartelette and Omelette arrived the same day as I did and they still had a lot of exploring to do.....

Tartelette and Omelette enjoying the wild roquette in the garden....... These two hens are so sweet and I am so inspired to get my own two hens back here in the USA. This will be something new for me but I am determined to make it work and I learnt a lot from R..... They had five star meals everyday and she just showered them with so much love.....

And then there are the precious cats....Tokala and Aiyani.......they are two of the most loving cats I have ever met. Aiyani took a while before she trusted me but Tokala came to me from day one and I must admit that she made me feel good because when I studied for a teacher years ago they told us not to study teaching if pets and children run away from you.....



To me....France would not be what I dreamt it to be without kitty cats, hens, lavender, blue shutters, etc. and I am so grateful that I could experience all of this in R's lovely garden with a café au lait in my one hand....!!

Till next time when I continue with the rest of my visit to the french countryside.....
