Today we stayed close to our own (as if) little chateau and I drew while my husband read and took care of business. It rained more than I would have liked and yet it didn't rain ALL day. For that I am thankful. Here are the last postcards from this trip, including one from yesterday's visit at Fontevraud Abbey, where Eleanor of Aquitane and various other Plantagenets are buried.
A selection of plantings from the end of season kitchen garden at Fontevraud.
This is Chateau des Ormeaux, where we've stayed this week--- a lovely and welcoming place. You would love it.
and this is the salon at the chateau. I wanted to draw some outdoor vignettes, but it was raining, so here is an indoor one.
We leave early tomorrow morning for Paris and our return flight home. Thank you for being part of our trip.
