Reading Ken's post recently, I am reminded how different things are in the Loire. Yes it will rain and it may cool off a bit, for a while. But you can guarantee that the summer there will be better than it will be in the UK. Usually it is a few degrees warmer, much brighter and somewhat drier.
Here are some photos from our trip in May last year. It was just the beginning of a really good summer.

We have enjoyed some rather fine weather here in Derbyshire during May. It happens like this most years. We get a few warm and sunny days in May and we get all excited. Out comes the garden furniture and we have a barbecue. Then it goes back under the covers for most of June, July and August !!
