|My new little rabbit, waiting for Régis|
I wasn't looking for a rabbit when I wandered through my favourite brocante in Rennes last spring, but when I found this special ridge tile-- a terracotta petit lapin-- I couldn't resist. I took him home and painted him black, to match the slate tiles on the top of Breton houses.

And a big job indeed it was when (in the way of French workmen) Régis finally got round to doing it in September. But Régis is quite the artist and was happy to secure my little rabbit on the roof of the cottage that bears its name. So there he is now, waiting to welcome the next guests to 'Le Petit Lapin'.
