I finally got the fabric bunting for our garden sewn up! I bought some squares last year in Paris when we were on our way to catch the train back home, so the colours/patterns were picked very quickly but I just wanted pretty and dainty and colours that would fade and mellow nicely in the sun.
I plan to hang it up between the apple and the quince tree at the old entrance to the 'front' of the house. The grassy public path beyond is the original road that led from the hamlet, straight down the mountain to the village of St Pierre d'Allevard. It is used now by walkers and trails bikers etc or just by our neighbour going to her vegetable garden :) So the garden is just open to the countryside at this bit and the bunting will just give a little decorative closure at times :)
