From the 14th to the 16th of July 2017 the feast The Days of the Wind, organized by the association Penvins Cerf-Volant, celebrated its fifteenth edition under a wind in accordance with a radiant sun and a calm and cool sea .
On the morning of the 15th of July, the wind was very soft and calm, perfect for a new installation, such as a gift to Notre-Dame-de-la-Côte. Everyone was invited to go to the tip of the peninsula for a dreamlike ballad in a surprising Bouquet of Giant Poppies.
So I present to you the film of the installation superbly captured by Pauline Garraud on a music of Klifa Rachedi and Maud Rached.
Here, finally, in photos these moments in the transfigured scenery of the western tip of the peninsula. A magnificent, wild place, where everyone has been able to approach nature and discover remarkable points of view.
I thank the association Penvins Kite, the partners of the festival and also all the volunteers who make it live.
Between sky and flowers, a day of entertainment in the heart of the Vendée
Welcomed by the Logis de la Chabotterie on this wonderful day of Sunday, June 11th, 2017, it was during the Garden Day that a bouquet of 29 Poppies grew in the meadow of the Logis.
It is therefore accompanied by Lilou and Pierre that we installed the largest version of the Hanging Poppy Bouquet for the first time.
On the ground near the entrance of the site, we also flying the Arches of O in conditions of weak but sufficient wind to sculpt a few elegant lines in the sky of the Logis, thus welcoming the public at the beginning of its visit.
The Logis de la Chabotterie is exalted
In this magnificent place dedicated to the culture, some “Meilleurs Ouvriers de France”, and Vendée, also decorated the estate with beautiful floral compositions.
The Vegetable Garden also surprised by its vegetable fantasy led by “Madame Salsifis” and “John Topinambour”. Madame de la Fontenelle also made a spectacle of her bucolic poetry by presenting Le Soin des Plantes in the 18th century. A culinary animation, A Tasting Bouquet, was presented by Chef Arnaud Acher. A discovery of the hives of the house was also on the agenda. A sculptor of balloons also marveled at small and large by his amazing floral creations.
This day was rich in discoveries and shared pleasures in the sumptuous setting of the Logis de La Chabotterie.
The poetic universe of four artists and their flying sculptures in the sky of Penvins Kite.

Here is a video, made by my friend Pauline Garraud. In front of the Chapelle de la Grée Penvins, a flight of my kite Butterfly . It is therefore by a cool evening but with a magnificent sunset that the Morpho hovers over the light breeze.
Here is the video clip of the Bouquet of 19 Coquelicots Suspendus installed in the French Garden of the castle of Vaux-le-Vicomte. This bouquet symbolizes the soldiers who fell during the Great War of 1914-1918. It was a great pleasure to participate in this special event. The castle was transformed into an auxiliary hospital during this conflict.
This clip is produced by Pauline Garraud of Hybride Diffusion. The aerial images are from Pablo Sotes. The music is composed by Raphael Garraud.
While the festival “festiventu” is unfortunately canceled that same year, I am contacted to participate in a video clip. It is therefore a week of preparation on the Balagne beaches in Calvi. My flying facilities should serve as a decor for an advertisement of a Samsung camera, The NX1.
