A diverse offering twixt the interesting, the unusual, and the amusing.

These small, round, stone-roofed 'bories' are very much a feature around where I live; one finds them everywhere. They are just big enough for a shepherdess and friend to shelter from the rain (ahem).
This one has been well positioned overlooking downward sloping pasture, with a good view over several hectares.
Reasons for their original construction vary depending on who you ask, but in general they are all-purpose, small, dry shacks, for either human or animal shelter. In other words you do with them what you wish; and with whom!
This is the same building from the back. I photographed it when I recently took Monty down to the lake for a swim; nice, isn't it!
The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
