La Roche Posay and the First of May

Today is a National Holiday in France for the Fête de Travail and Ascension Day.
Four months of the year has passed and we are still in Winter and the rain has fallen and the heavy ground is still too wet to plant potatoes. A few weeks ago we celebrated the arrival of Spring and mowed the lawn and weeded and prepared the vegetable plots. We even planted some potatoes but we expect they have rotted in the cold wet conditions! Having been plunged back into winter and daily deluges of water falling from the skies we were all grateful that the Summer arrived for the last weekend of April because

"Le Moyen Age" came to the ancient mediaeval city of La Roche-Posay.
