If you have been following my new website, Build a House With Me, you will know that I have been trying to renovate an old barn in the French countryside for the last few months.

如果你一直在关注我的新网站“和我一起建房子”的话,你就会知道过去的几个月里我一直在法国乡下努力地翻新一座很古老的破旧不堪的房子。

What you might also know is that there aren’t many people in the French countryside, and so when we get a visit from the neighbours, it’s exciting!

你也许也会从我的网站中了解到法国乡下人烟稀少,所以当有邻居要上门拜访时,我们感到特别的兴奋!

I was told yesterday that the local farmer was coming to visit us, and that he was going to bring a special gift! What a treat!

昨天我被告知一个当地的农民要来我们家做客,并且他会给我们带来一个很特别的礼物!真的是天上掉馅饼了!

When he arrived, however, I was less impressed. The gift was a huge
pile….

然而,当他到我们家的时候,我很失望!原来所谓的礼物是一堆…

…of steaming horse manure.
热气腾腾马屎。

On the positive side it means that we’ll be able to grow more plants around the garden, like these beauties:

可是如果你从另外一个乐观的角度来看的话,这也意味着我们可以用这些马屎给花园里更多的植物施肥,就像这些美女们:

Maybe it didn’t stink so much after all!
也许它并没有我们想象中的那么臭!
