The lane leading to Jardins des Thevenets is lined with Blackberry bushes. One afternoon Tami, Kelly and Susan came back with handfuls of berries. They were so delicious we decided to return and pick a few bowls of them for breakfast.
On the walk we passed century old buildings.
Bits of pieces of charm littered the path.
Windows were dressed with graceful branches and wild roses .
There were flowers everywhere.
Even the barn has that certain French charm:-)
Tami found the choicest berries.
Kelly managed to look chic even though she was being pricked.....
We used the berries for breakfast, served in a large compote dish they were a lovely addition to the yogurt.
They were so sweet we decided to use them for these delicious dessert verrines. Layers of berries, whipped cream and Speculos cookies were a light but satisfying sweet. As Lynn would say, "It was sufficient."
