Jamming around the lavendar

Lazy, hazy summer days are here. Farmer Bernard mowed and raked and baled the hay this week. His is a sweat-making labor that we watched from the cool safety of our veranda, on this side of the lavendar and daisies, where butterflies and bees were keeping busy.

We did, however, pick fruit and make jam. The currants are from the garden but the apricots from the valley floor, deservedly famous Valaisan "abricots."
