Merry Christmas…..its has been a very sunny and mild Christmas here in the lot and Dordogne region….we have had a lovely time with our family …...I got a surprise present  4 turkeys not to eat but hoping for turkey eggs in the spring….. as I walked the dogs last night it was so peaceful all you could hear was the rustle of leaves has the dogs raced around….and got me thinking how quickly once Christmas is over how everything changes, there are already signs of leaves coming through of the first plants to come out in spring…..there are also dandelions out and small pretty purple flowers and bushes covered in berries this year which the blackbirds are enjoying….I know we will have some bad weather before but the months do fly by…..and its good to start planning for spring…...Matthew my eldest son thought he saw a dog on the park but  when he looked closer it was our hare he was so surprised how big it was…..I am busy filling up my bird feeders so many birds coming to eat some that we did nt see during the hot summer but have now returned…. I would like to wish you all a very Haapy New Year and hope 2019 is a good one for you take care xx….

Its a bit fresh this morning......I would think an extra cover was put on the beds last night....a bit misty at the minute but sunshine later....and warming up...around 20c today not has high as last week but températures rising tomorrow and next week....some of our résidents are packing things away now and planning to leave next week....and others who have just returned to enjoy the last few weeks of the season...although the evenings feel cooler it is still beautiful in the daytime.....we are all thinking of Dudley who has just had an op and wish him a speedy recovery.....if you want to know anything about the flowers butterflies, birds etc he s the man to ask.....it is always interesting to me meeting our résidents who are all from different walks of life......and all who have so much in common...some have been travelling around France for many years maybe had a tourer or motorhome.....mostly retired... and have chose Les Vignes Vieilles to share with their family and friends.....a relaxing place yet central to all tourist attractions.....and some who are still working  planning ahead for when they retire.....what ever your reason for joining us all here you will not be disapointed......we are a warm and welcoming park....
