provence


i admit
i've looked forward to being here again
since the day we left last year.

this year has taken us
to the south of france--
namely provence.

i wouldn't say the weather is exactly
what we planned for
(i.e. runs to the store for sweaters)
but we aren't minding a bit.  
the swimming pool can wait.

we've got mussels & fries to devour
village lanes to stroll
fountains to dip our fingers in
and van gogh's path to follow.








internet is not in the house.
it could end up being some set up like that.
but i don't think there are any foxes around. . .

Oh you will be charmed with the lavender flowers. The Loire Valley , Indre et Loire et Vienne in Poitou Charentes has had glorious heatwaves but now cardis and warmer clothes are necessary to fight the strong wind that blows from the south. Storms threatened rain but little rain fell here, however, more spilled to the ground closer to the river. Farmers are in despair with the drought as they are having to feed the newly cropped hay to the animals. Enjoy France.
