Some time ago, I was trying to find an image that I had taken on one of our car tours…. we were on the way to an Alpine pass, and we were waiting to enter a tunnel when we joined a small queue of cars which had stopped because it sounded like a traction engine was thundering through. Imagine our surprise when a cow bedecked with flowers emerged followed by her companions. She had obviously won the prize as the best producer of milk. I had thought it was when we were going to the Stelvio pass in September 2000.
Today I was sorting through some old photo albums, looking for images from the Auvergne. Instead, I found that winning cow in some images taken on the way to the St Gotthard in 1997:
Doesn’t she look marvellous with her flowers and her bell?
