Mains dans les poches = hands in the pockets, which is a saying that means not spending, just looking.
Here’s another old boy in a berry, one of my neighbours & his dog. Observe that he is wearing no socks inside his plastic clogs. I took this photo when the temperatures were COLD, the evening I painted that last blogged oil, when it went sub zero. COLD. I admire this generation of old boys. He told me that during Feb 1956, it rarely went above zero all month. Bad news for a plein-air painter.
