It rained and rained for a fortnight, or it nearly did on my birthday! At last the sun came out and the day began…..
Kir avec Cassis – a mix of cassis and white wine is a typical French cocktail, cassis is a sweet dark red liqueur made from blackcurrants originating in Dijon. Kir Royale is cassis mixed with champagne or a sparkling wine – my favourite!
My beautiful French tapestry birthday present of an English hunting scene – I love it!
