Une belle aventure

Our new life in 'Les Vosges'

We have been doing A LOT of digging

We wanted to tackle the back of the house before winter really sets in and that involved digging it.

A lot of it is clay so pretty hardcore to dig.

This also meant A LOT of trips to the ‘rat’s castle’ for Matt.

Mont in the Mist.
We started digging and as always with tedious tasks, Matt gets bored very easily, so he decided to spice things up and build some stairs!

That ‘kind of’ wasn’t enough, so he looked around for other stones and found an old water trough.

Whilst I made mud balls and found treasures….Like an old cow’s horn.
(also found some teeth but forgot to take a photo! lol)

Oh and also pulled some Monster roots.

We were pretty happy with what we had achieved.
We left it for a couple of weeks and then we started digging again with one little difference.
Out with the old…in with the new.

And this is what we started with.
