Going Green

Going Green

This week at Lou Messugo it's been all about going green. We've been eagerly watching the deconfinement map of France change colour while watching the new grass in the garden growing before our eyes. Deconfinement Map Going Green All eyes have been on the...

Lockdown Rhythm

Lockdown Rhythm

Our lockdown this week beats fairly consistently to the rhythm of gardening and baking with a first-time family walk and another hole in the fence apéro breaking up the boredom. That's about all there is to say about the lockdown rhythm at Lou Messugo during week 3....

Quarantine Reality at Lou Messugo

Quarantine Reality at Lou Messugo

This week quarantine reality at Lou Messugo gets boring! We've been getting into a rhythm of croquet - lots of croquet - technology and finding the best way to shop for groceries. We've tried Leclerc Drive ("click-and-collect") which has had its pros and cons. On the...

Spring in our Riviera Garden

Spring in our Riviera Garden

A while ago I was asked by the magazine Living France to write about my garden in the Riviera.  At the time I couldn't publish what I wrote here on the blog as the idea was that people would buy the print magazine, but all this time later I thought I'd finally share...

Snow on the Côte d’Azur

Snow on the Côte d’Azur

We've had snow on the Côte d'Azur this week.  It's such a rare occurrence that I felt it justified a photo reportage direct from the garden at Lou Messugo; very few words...the pictures speak for themselves. Almost as soon as it started to snow I rushed out to take...

Living in the South of France – My Autumn Garden

Living in the South of France – My Autumn Garden

Back in late 2015 I was asked by the magazine Living France to write a series of articles about my garden in the Côte d'Azur.  I wrote one for each season and couldn't publish them here on the blog as the magazine, being an actual "old-school" print magazine, requires...

One of the Best Places on Earth!

One of the Best Places on Earth!

What is Lou Messugo? Let's talk about "Lou Messugo".  Sometimes I get the feeling people are confused about Lou Messugo. What/who is it exactly? Perhaps I’m too wary of promoting my own business on this blog that it’s not actually clear that Lou Messugo is first and...

Frogs & Snakes in my French Garden

Frogs & Snakes in my French Garden

It’s been a while since I’ve written about the wildlife at Lou Messugo but not for the lack of it, far from it, this summer has been all about snakes and pretty green frogs in my French garden.  I guess that could be a bit of an exaggeration as the summer hasn’t...

Seriously? More Wildlife at Lou Messugo?

Seriously? More Wildlife at Lou Messugo?

A few weeks ago we had some unusual visitors at Lou Messugo.  That in itself is not so strange, we've had a fair few unusual visitors over the years, both of the human kind and beast.  If you've been reading this blog for a while you'll know we've had plenty of visits...

My French garden: summer in Alpes-Maritimes

My French garden: summer in Alpes-Maritimes

Last year I was contacted by Living France magazine and interviewed for a short article about the garden at Lou Messugo. They found me through all the posts I have written here on the blog over the years about creating and developing our garden. One thing led to...
