Our little saga of bucolic sundays continues with a visit to our friend Antonia who lives outside my village in cherry land or should I say, cherry orchard paradise....I always tell her, I'd never be able to do one tenth of what she achieves every day. Antonia is an artist and she also works hard on her land, picking cherries in summer and selling them, making wine in autumn, growing vegetables. She also has a few goats and makes cheese. Let's add to this, a few hens and roosters, little frogs, cat and dog...When she's in the mood, she takes up her brushes and paints and exhibits her work now and then. I just don't know how she does it all!The house was built little by little. There was no bathroom, no kitchen
Antonia made part of the floors herself
the sunny terrace....once you sit there, it's quite difficult to make a move
here is our charming hostess
she set up her studio in her bedroom.
because the place is quite cold in winter, Antonia escapes to warmer territories during the winter months
it's also teatime for the goats...yum...plenty of good things which will give a splendid flavor to the milkwouldn't you like to taste the cheese Antonia makes with such a delicious milk?
tomorrow and during the whole week, there's a lot of cherry picking to do....Monchéri will give a hander....I will too....in my own way, that is....Would you care to join ?
Happy monday to you !
I'll be back on wednesday to answer some tags
