It was a really lovely summer morning and since it was my day off from work, I got into the car and drove to Hautefort to visit my favorite “brocante” (antique shop) lady, Isabelle, to see if she had any items I couldn’t live without.
I had forgotten she only opened at 11 am, so I had 20 minutes to walk around the village. The main highlight of Hautefort is its’ “Musée de la Médecine”, a 17th Century hospice which has become a museum showing not only the typical activities of the hospice, but various medical instruments spanning the decades. Rather quirky.
In anycase, what I also discovered was the medicinal plant and herb garden hidden behind the hospice. I like these slate roof tiles which have be repurposed as plant markers – something to note for the day I have my own herb garden. How do you mark your herbs and plants? Any other clever ideas?
