L’ancien et le nouveau chez Bois Jarzeau

The hot weather of August produces great storms that travel from the west and on one day monumental clouds rise up over the hameau.

The hameau, like many hereabouts, is part old and part new as homes are created in the ancient limestone buildings.

On the old well (le puits) at Bois Jarzeau there is a collection of ceramic pots by Debbie de Beer.  They form, with the wood and iron of the rusting mechanism, a wonderful combination of shapes and textures.
