Bourrou village from the second floor window of the extension

This photo shows the centre of Bourrou village from the first floor of our extension.

The whole village covers about a thousand acres and has about 150 inhabitants. About a dozen people live in the bourg. (The village centre – hence the word “bourgeois” meaning “city dwellers”.)

In the ‘photo, you can also see two of the ponds we created to help drainage and the mini swales we dug to give us more margins and better planting conditions in this monotonous area of thick clay, as we hope to plant trees and shrubs here soon.
