A Summer Week-end in Provence

It is too hot to get out and explore. I half-heartedly looked around for some festivals but there just wasn’t anyway I was going to get out into the sun and heat and walk around. Instead I worked in the heat in our yard. At least there is some shade from a big tree to helps and a swimming to get into to cool down. We are busily trying to make something of the area where I dug up the grass. I think it will look great when we finish but, with the heat, we can only do a little at a time. I discovered an interesting Japanese shop in Aix and I love the things for gardens that they sell so I am thinking of making the area a little zen in feeling. Water would be great but I’m not sure if I want to deal with pumps and all. In any case, here are a few photos from around Aix.


The square has a daily market.


An old sign on the side of a building that I like.


The church down at the end of the street that this artist is painting has been done by several famous artists including Cezanne and Van Gogh.

  1. Yummy photos! And yes, a zen garden would be lovely. As for the heat,hope you’re managing to stay reasonably cool. No air-conditioners here, alas.
