On Friday we headed out of London for the quiet of our house in the country. We hadn't been for three weeks and it has rained almost constantly since we were last there. We were concerned for our baby Barn Owls when we were last saw them there were three owlets. We were relieved to see two large fat babies and not surprised that one hadn't made it. Both parents were working flat out bringing in a constant supply of mice and voles.

On our pond a mallard has taken up residence in the luxury duck house 

We dream of ducks but the herons normally massacre the ducklings and there are lots of herons!..................

Everything is green and lush................

Like in our house in Provence we get the most marvellous skies

BBC3 now have operas on Saturday evenings and Thursday afternoons and last Thursday was the La Fille du Regiment with Natalie Dessay and Juan Diego Florez..............and all for free what a joy, blogging to music of this quality live from the Opera House.
Il Faut Partir............. 
La fille du Régiment N. Dessay, J. D. Flórez
