Git no I mean Gite

By colmar  
Good Morning

These flowers in v2 were captured in Brissarthe in France, every year we disappear for two weeks to a comfortable home from home somewhere in France, this particular time it rained every day, day two into it we went and bought wellies and waterproofs ! We still had a great time.

V1 is the largest town close to the Gite, Fougeres and the Chateau was and is beautiful well worth a visit.
Best large and f11 ctrl+ for windows users, camera was hand held.

Thanks for all your kind words and votes on our previous uploads as ever we truly appreciate each and every one, Col(in) and Mar(i)

Beautiful. You dont see places like that in Australia. After all I suppose we are only a little over a couple of hundred years old LOL. Great work.

Two great shots you have here. V1 is brilliant, V2 is a perfect foxglove shot.
I think I read somewhere that you are an exile Scotsman Colin, so why shouldn't you enjoy a rainy holiday? Smile
