The French seem to drain them in the autumn and sell the fish off but as freezerbill says ask around maybe the Mairie.

Lonely beagle in France

by edmoraz • Thu 16 Jun 2016 11:41

Before we moved to France in April we took out friendly beagle Millie to dog parks in the uk so she could mix with other dogs but because she is a beagle and has little control over herself once she gets on a scent, any scent, we had to make sure these areas were secure. I was wondering if there was...

Re: Mole News

I think there seems to be a lot more mole hills this year and in places we never had them before one came up in between the cracks in the cobbles, now that must have been a squeeze.

Re: Poppies- friend or foe?

by edmoraz • Sun 29 May 2016 08:28

We use to have a lot of self seeded poppies then nothing for a few years and then up they would come again, I wonder how long the seeds can lay dormant for. Sometimes it was a good five years in between them showing their faces.

Hi I agree you do not need permissions to cut your own trees another option I have heard about is you pay a tree cutter who charges about €250 a day but cuts your trees from dawn till dusk or until you say stop,

Ticks seem very bad at the moment, we frontline our dog every four weeks but she still gets at least two ticks a week. I believe advantx is a better treatment and only available from the vet has anyone used it.
