These are two sweet French boys, Martin and Gabriel, who played together in the field all afternoon, then came inside for some chocolate brioche that we had purchased fresh that morning. Some say that this is the "best brioche in the world" and I would not disagree. This is our typical french breakfast, good organic bread with hazelnuts, chocolate brioche, for a special treat for one day, and chocolate for Gabriel. Of course he must dunk his bread, as he is French!
I have had a little time, between making jam and picking the harvest from Pia's garden, to sketch around the property. This is my favorite view of her chapel, which will one day become a music center, with lots of love and attention. Perhaps it will also shine again with new stained glass windows that will be a focal point of this beautiful and ancient building.
