Little Tullius is taking shade from the hot sun under a Jade plant in the medieval village of Roquebrune. It's the 5th August - the day of the Procession giving thanks for the time, in the 15th century, when the village was spared the plague. I'll be putting photographs of this on Menton Daily Photo eventually.
Did you know that the Chinese believe that if you put a jade plant in front of your front door and another by the back door, money will come in and won't go out?
I thought Tullius might be a Sheltie cross but his owners told me he's simply a mix - indeed a cute one. Tullius, who is 9 years old, is on holiday in the south of France from his home in Germany.
