Okay, it’s unlikely that Fougerolles will ever be luring tourists by advertising its selection of doors,  but it’s not just all cherries and distilleries.  Here’s a small selection for your Thursday delectation.  Be sure not to miss the last one!

Here in the U.S., we’re celebrating Thanksgiving.  I have so much for which to be thankful and you, my blogging friends, are certainly a part of that.  Thanks for making my days brighter and more interesting.

Warning!!  Do NOT consume hot beverages or even food while reading unless prepared to do laundry and clean up your surroundings.  You have been warned!!

The day of the cherry festival, we arrived much too early, which meant we got to wander around Fougerolles.  Near the church and the city hall, we found this small but lovely garden.  I’d love to have it in my yard.
