Such a fun idea! I love all the images of your own property and places to gather...looks just heavenly. Just took a look at your friend's
gite and oh-la-la.....looks just wonderful.

Dee-lightful! You have inspired me. Now that the weather is warming up here in central California, I can easily find several choice locations in our large yard.

Merci, Lynn.

What a great read Lynn. I love the spirit of your friends and they certainly know how to shake up things a bit. I think we could fit right in there. Beautiful photos!

Lynn, I always love hearing about your beautiful part of the world which I will be visiting at the end of this month. I knew I should ask for a recommendation of a place to stay!! Now with this story I see the absolutely perfect place with all of the comforts and ambiance. I did find a beautiful place, but your friend has the best!! Next time...
