A pottery studio in St Civran, France

Welcome to this blog about the quiet rural life in the Berry Province of France where I have tried to open a pottery studio to hobby potters.
Your comments will be appreciated.

Snow and ice... This winter 2011-2012 had been mild so far. We were getting used to green grass for ever until this past week when the snow started covering the landscape!

I love it! On Tuesday I walked the 5 km between St Civran and Chazelet with my granddaughter, taking lovely photos on the way. This morning we woke up with a layer of 16 cm of white snow on the ground and more falling from the sky.

...as soon as I find the lead to unload those photos from my camera onto my computer, I'll show them here!

Post Scriptum on 11 April 2012

Here are the promised photos of St Civran under snow in February:

Me, Frankie, deep in snow in front of my pottery

My car in front of the pottery studio and house attached

This photo of mine turned out looking fantastic... no doubt someone will pinch it without asking! :-(

Thanks, O Docker, your French is spot on! Actually it snows every winter but this time we were caught by surprise because the winter had been really mild until the end of January.
