I passed through L’Isle Bouchard recently and noticed that the river was very full and in fact seemed to have broken its banks. Between the two rows of trees there is usually a very nice pathway that we have walked often in the summer.
In this last picture the little dots are mistletoe. For years I thought they were birds nests but once when I got close enough I was able to see that the dots are masses of little branches of the mistletoe plant. It's a fascinating plant. According to what I heard on the Archers this week the Druids believed it had mystical properties. (Never believe anything you read in the newspapers or hear on the Archers !!)
