Still hot but green in the Cantal, although there is a cooler breeze today. We're packing up for a brief return to home and garden in England,and according to French meteo, there is a good chance of rain on the way back to the ferry. The picture shows the fountain, put up in1894 by public subscription, which at the moment has no water in it, because there is a water shortage here - we have been asked not to water gardens, not to wash cars, or refill swimming pools. The same happened last year, which was also a fairly dry year. Luckily for us, we don't have a pool, are not great car washers (a couple of times a year is more than often enough) and the garden here is very small, with nothing in it which needs watering.
