Photographer's Note

An old barn in the small but picturesque village of Sainte-Radegonde filled with an interesting assortment of rather eclectic items. I was particularly taken by the tresses of garlic hung out to dry in the rafters.

This picture is dedicated to Karen Arnold (dareco), who has delighted us with her pictures of Canadian barns.

The village of Sainte-Radegonde is in the commune of Baignes-Sainte-Radegonde, which was formed in 1865 from the merger of Sainte-Radegonde and the now larger village of Baignes. The area has a long history dating back until at least Roman times when there was a settlement known as Cathmeriacum. It lay on the Roman road that linked Saintes to Bordeaux.

Quite an extensive article about the geography and history of Baignes-Sainte-Radegonde can be found on the French wikipedea site here:. It is written, of course, in French.
