Homage to the plane trees of the Canal du Midi. Durcat Durcat
Walk along the Canal du Midi
Watercolor, 310 X 230 mm

In memory of our walk along the Canal du Midi in April 2012.
My mother had invited us to Poehles for a delicious meal. From the terrace where we had breakfasted, we could see the boats of tourists who came to dock a few minutes, the time to replenish water and food. The sun was shining and a pleasant contemplative walk took us along the canal. A light wind was rustling the leaves of the trees condemned.
We will have to cut them all because they are sick, affirmed the server and I thought that with all current technologies it was very surprising that we are not able to preserve a place so wonderful. The Canal du Midi will never be the same without their majestic foliage pattern. Isn'it sweet to walk in their shade! For centuries they protect us from the sun and we delight the eyes, can we really do anything to save them? Decision-makers are investing billions to get raw materials on Mars and to walk on the moon but neglect of life on earth, this beautiful earth!

The Canal du Midi was classified a World Heritage Site by unesco in 1996

Belle aquarelle ! D'autant + sensible que j'aime longer en velo le canal du nivernais, pas bcp de platanes, des cerisiers, des accacias qui embaument au printemps… Bravo a vous !

C'est une délicieuse vue du canal du midi, une balade bien douce et tranquille au fil de l'eau !

Très réussi, bravo! !
Pour les platanes c'est une fois de plus la solution la moins onéreuse qui a été retenue, même si on nous raconte le contraire.

Superbe aquarelle lumineuse.

Petite correction car il s'agit de Poihles et non Poehles et cela ne se prononce pas Poil. Ce charmant petit village se trouve entre Bézier et Narbonne. Avec le nom exacte vous n'aurez pas de difficulté à trouver.
