First day back in the Ariege for a while and perfect weather so a brisk walk to Barry d'en Haut is high on the list of things to do!
The little church sits high up at the very top of the village.
It's well worth the final push up the hill even in the heat of the day!
The back of the church with its adjoining cemetery is as pretty as the front.
Insects and flowers alike look vividly colourful in the clarity of the mountains.
This ornate but rusty old garden gate looks beautifully shabby chic in the bright sunshine.
