Chestnut honey

In England the honey production this year has been very low.  Lots of sugar fed to bees for their survival did not even ensure a good level of honey.  In the South of France, not as much. The production this year was lower but healthy.  We loaded up on kilos of the gold stuff to bring back to London. And had to draw the light coming through my favorite flavor, chesnut honey.

Breakfast table doodles from the South of France.  "Ricore" is a half coffee - half roasted chicory root drink that is sometimes given to teens for breakfast as the first steps before coffee.  It is a lower caffeine way to start the day for adults and perfect for a vacation cafe au lait!

Messy breakfast table included.

The cherries were hand-picked in a burgundy garden on our way to the South. Drawn under a parasol.
