Sablet market is on again today (Really? we say to each other, appalled at the way time slips by without meetings and deadlines. Is it really Friday already? ) But yes it is Friday and the market is on and my favourite grand-pere is there with his home-grown fruit. Supplies have been dwindling as summer comes in - no cherries, no plums today; just three tubs of apricots, smaller than last week and softer and so much sweeter.
After the last market, Joss and I made apricot-and-lavender jam, and ramped up my list of French verbs and Provencal idioms. These ones won't make jam - but they'll be delicious ice-cold after lunch with a good French cheese.
