Still no rain . We don't have water rationing ; yet . But it can't be long in coming . The downside of day after day of blue skies and gentle breezes . While I roll out the hose pipe to irrigate the lavender beds Wilf opts for half an hours post-breakfast relaxation . He saunters out of the house with a soft toy in his jaws and chooses a shady spot under the cherry trees . True to form he's soon on his back in the cool grass snoring gently . The sounds of France Profonde . The cheerful chirrup of the wrens in the roof eaves , the sun loving croak of the frogs on the pond and a small white , whistling , polar bear in the orchard . The perfect Monday morning .
A nap under a cherry tree would brighten anyone's day!ReplyDelete
I wouldn't mind sending you some of our rain. We've had an overload of it, unfortunately.ReplyDelete
What a great stuffy! Wilf, you are welcome to some of my rain. We have had so much that the ground is like a sponge! We finally had some sun and blue sky today, but that just made it very humid, which I don't think you would enjoy. More rain tomorrow!ReplyDelete
I would love to nap under a cherry tree. I bet you have such sweet dreams!
Wishing Wilf many more such perfect Monday mornings.ReplyDelete
x (for Wilf!)
Do we read it right? Does it say 'Hamish' on that soft toy?ReplyDelete
Well said Joanna. I am with you.ReplyDelete
We live in Lancashire - nuff said. No sun - lots of rain. Blue skies and gentle breezes sounds like perfection from this side of the channel.
XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella
Such a cutie - hope it will rain soon. Same here. Love from Southern France Susanne P.S. My lavender is without water all summer ... and loves it.ReplyDelete
No rain in Brittany too, for such long months !ReplyDelete
Love the pictures of Wilfee on his back playing with his toy, just so cute.
Have a beautiful Monday Angus' family.
Bisous to my beloved Wilfee.
Hey there Angus...ReplyDelete
If you can find contentment in sleep, why not? Wilfey looks beautiful as he battles this affliction. You are always in our thoughts. Give that special pup a hug - all the way from South Africa

You have described what I call 'perfect moments.' Where time seems to stand still and everything around you is in perfect harmony. I enjoy those moments as well, and I hope we both have many more with our canine companions.ReplyDelete
Wilf, we are enjoying your blog and the lovely life you have. Snoozing under the cherry tree with your toy sounds like a perfect day.ReplyDelete
Julie and Poppy Q
We wish that we could send you some of our rain, flood watches and warnings are posted every day for our area.ReplyDelete
Hugs for Wilf.
Blessings and Love,
Janelle and Maggie Mae
A toy, a nap under a cherry tree...sounds like Wilf is in an earthly heaven in that lovely peaceful environment. And that is exactly as it should be. Happy perfect Monday to all. DBHReplyDelete
Morning Wilf: we awoke to thunder, lightening and pouring rain? Shall I send some with the President when he comes to France in a few days? Wait he's stopping in Ireland, I'm sure he can pick some rain up there.ReplyDelete
Snooze away...not much else to do.
Your old black dog friend
Angus-We thank you for giving Wilf the life we all dream of, and for sharing the darling little polar bear with us. Hugs to all.ReplyDelete
A happy and content polar bear, Angus.ReplyDelete
I think I'd very much like to trade Monday mornings with you and Wilf today!ReplyDelete
Sheer perfection!! It is amazing that Wilf still likes toys at his age - I wonder if the tactile feeling in his mouth has some to do with the loss of his sight. I hadn't realized just how much he had changed until yesterday when I looked back to the Italy days and pictures of him and Digby together.ReplyDelete
Did you win the prize?ReplyDelete
sigh... I feel as though I'm sitting in the shade with Wilf listening to all those wonderful sounds...ReplyDelete
A perfect Monday morning indeed....we had one here too...a statutory holiday that is!! But our weather is not as nice as yours sounds. Let's hope for some rain for you folk, save on your watering! Keep going Wilf, lovely boy!ReplyDelete
With love your Canadian pals,
Dianna along with Tor, Willow and Tucker
ya, um, we got a message in our mail en francais that said something about not watering the lawns... but you know i really can't read french. i'm american so it doesn't pertain to us who can't read french, right? ;)ReplyDelete
seriously, my poor lawn is brown and crisp. so sad because it's not even "ours" since we "louer" the joint... which oddly makes it harder for me to not take care of it and water the darn lawn. i feel kind of bad for not taking care of it.
Ah, sweet Wilfie. We're so glad you're blessed with these halcyon days.ReplyDelete
So what happened with the aged mechanical digger across the way? We're expecting a new village pond at the very least.
Jed & Abby
Dear sweet Wilf. I love these vignettes about his happy life with you. Wonderful photos of your happy fellow.ReplyDelete
Do cherry trees have a perfume when they are in bloom? Our wild honeysuckle must love all the rain we have had; it is like a perfumery even going by a window. Sweet morning dreams, Wilf.ReplyDelete
