In the spring we often have a French student come and spend time here working in the garden, it is part of their first year placement. I always find the students fun and interesting to get to know. They are often very good at drawing and will sit in the garden after work and draw. After their placements they will often come back and visit, on one of these visits five of them came and spent a weekend here, when they left they gave me a folder of their work which I put away and found again not long ago. One of the pictures I really love, it is a view from the compost heap looking forwards the house, a view I know so well.
