Lavander

I took these photos in the South of France last year...
















...I like the pale blue of the door and window...
















...very "Provence" style...

















...it reminds me of lavander...

















...first scented bunches of the Season!
Have a nice new week!

La provenza è nel mio cuore da anni ormai. Quando vedo foto come queste mi sciolgo....Ieri sera per farmi tornare la nostalgia (e la voglia di andare) mi sono guardata per la 300esima volta Un'ottima Annata!!! Perchè non possiamo vivere più vite?? O semplicemente avere più case??? ;) bisous

Something White ha detto...

Great Provence-feeling here! Did you know that the blue paint originally was to keep the insects, flies and so on away? Yes, indeed! Some years ago I lived for 1 year in the Provence area (near Aups) and so I heard about that. Lovely flower-compositions you made, by the way.
Have a happy Summertime, Vale, all my best greetings,
Marjolijn

Ciao bella....
I love the French pictures.....especially the blue colour...
I have just "admired" your neighbour`s garden....how can somebody let the garden in such a mess??
Where does she live?? Next to you???
My neighbour is nearly the same...he is much more interested in cars and computers as in flowers...

Greetings and thanks for your lavender smelly post.Anita
