Wedding Belles in Northern France

Here in the Nord Pas de Calais, the past two months have been hot and dry, frequently with temperatures higher than the Mediterranean regions. We’ve already entertained the first guests of 2017 at the Bed & Breakfast, and we look forward to a busy summer accommodating many more happy holidaymakers here in Northern France. The year is passing quickly at Le Petit Manoir; we did suffer a few days of hard overnight frost in late April that killed all my Wisteria flowers in a few hours....

Spring Has Sprung!

Suddenly the spring seems to have arrived. The birds are singing at 5 am, and the sun is shining. The snowdrops are in full flower, and I’ve spotted lots of other bulbs poking through the soil. I spent the whole of Monday in the garden of at Le Petit Manoir cutting back bushes and clearing dead growth from last year. When I was pruning the grape vine against the kitchen wall, it was really warm, lovely. I’ve still got plenty to do to get it ready for summer visitors to our modest...

Bonne année

Well, after a year or more, at last I have time for an update. The last eighteen months have been so hectic, two more bedrooms in the original loft, a kitchen up-grade and radiators throughout! What a difference they have made so far this winter, no more going out first thing to fetch in coal and logs, no dust and ashes, lovely. I still light the fires for special occasions, they do give a lovely snug atmosphere. Having the radiators means that I can welcome guests at any time of the year,...

Another Year in Northern France

Just arrived back to our Bed and Breakfast in France following from a few days in the UK selling my car. I’ve decided it’s time to go native, so I’m buying a French one to help me get about here in Nord Pas De Calais. Not sure how I’ll take to left hand drive but  the lanes around here are so traffic free that I’ll be able to get in some safe practise. The awful storms of the last month or so seem to be abating, yesterday was a beautiful spring day, warm enough to...

Warm & Relaxing

Here’s a nice testimonial for our B&B in the Nord Pas de Calais that we received recently. Spent two warm and relaxing days at the Petit Manior, the breakfast was great, loads of delicious coffee, We found several good restaurants nearby, not too expensive, and there was more than enough to see and do in the area to keep us busy for the two days, We’ve got a list of things to do when we come back, which I hope will be soon. Thanks Bronwen     RW. Birchington Thanks to Rick for...

Spring in France – Coming Soon!

Amongst all the rain and gales we are having at the moment in the Nord Pas de Calais –  yesterday was a lovely day, still, with clear blue skies and a hint of warmth in the sun. I couldn’t resist spending a couple of hours in the garden. I didn’t do very much, but did have a good think about my plans to enlarge the veggie patch as spring will be arriving in Northern France before we know it. My little plot has given me great pleasure and enough fruit, salads and beans to keep...
