Unexpected Pleasure


This is a very common sight in Provence, rows of plane trees lining the roads. It is one of the pleasures of driving around Provence.

I always keep my eyes open for signs posted around the area for brochantes and Vide Greniers. These are flea market type happenings and I always love to look–but seldom buy. I went to one today at a village called St Paul de Durance, a place we often pass when on the road. That’s one thing I like about local brochantes-they take you into villages you normally wouldn’t stop for. This one was very small but had alot of charm.


I like this little lavender wagon filled with flowers. An unexpected jolt of color as I came around a corner.


I love wysteria-both the color and the fragrance.


Another view. I wish the wysteria I planted would do something like this instead of putting out a few puny leaves.


This is just a guess but I bet the person who lives in this house is a hunter.

  1. Hi there – I found you via your comment at Corey’s site. Love your photos! Wish there was that kind of glorious light in Paris. It’s gray today, with patches of sunshine—–but nothing like the South! Lucky you.

  2. Thanks! We do have gray days here in Provence, especially in the winter, but it is hard to beat the light in the Spring and Summer. Linda
