The other weekend, we visited my father-in-law in Southwest France, where he lives quite literally surrounded by nature. Taking a walk around there always reminds me that poet William Blake was right about finding a Heaven in a Wild Flower ...

  6. How fortunate for you and especially your sons that they can visit their grandfather and be surrounded by nature and the simpler things in life, which really matter the most. I wondered about the clothesline and perhaps it has another use since it appears to be in a field.

    1. Good observation Beatrice! There's a little house and barn right next to the clothesline (on the right, not pictured ;)
