I was very recently tagged by the lovely mama to pick the fourth photo in the fourth folder on my little notepad and talk about it.
Well the fourth folder is Our House and the fifth (reason below) picture turns out to be what we see when we look out of our living room balcony doors during the summer months. I'd taken the picture that day because the day before we had had the awning installed - we're south-facing and until that was put up high summer was really difficult in the main room. We'd have the balcony doors open and in the heat of the midday sun would sometimes be forced to shut the shutters, making it look like a blackout in there. This awning solved the problem nicely though. The morning that the photo had been taken I'd gone out to buy some cafe society furniture to complete the look and of course, being a house in Brittany, the geraniums on the balcony are standard for most houses in our region. Having said that, this photo (taken in July 2007) shows the last lot of geraniums I've ever planted sur le balcon. Last summer I went for a softer look, using lots of floaty pastel plants and I'll do so again this year.Actually we were so pleased with the look of the awning that a week later we decided to change the balcony doors to two clear glass doors that open completely flat against the wall inside the room (called portes Anglaises funnily enough, because of opening inwards), but that is the ninth photo in the stream.
Why didn't I use the fourth photo? I used the fifth because I had in fact already used the fourth about 18 months ago (but here it is again, just to keep the tag correct)
As this is a tag I've got to select four of you to do the same. So - following these rules:
