Into Picardy

 6th June.
 Some places in the Champagne vineyards sport plastic bags warning that the vines have been sprayed by helicopter....
Slightly worrying is the brown area of grass affected by spraying which can clearly be seen in the photo. Perhaps it was just as well I did not have that bottle of champagne
 An interesting article about use of pesticides and herbicides in Champagne -

I was constantly delighted by the endless grassy off road tracks through glorious French countryside - and NO gates to negotiate.  Along the GR142 to Courville..
 Coming down to St Thibault in Picardie..
 I manage to take a selfie in a road mirror....
