Wednesday Window on Provence

Okay...not exactly a window on Provence...but a petit bonjour from another colorful corner of the world: Vermont.

I was lucky to have arrived into a few mild autumn days to explore one of the most beautiful shows of color I've seen!

As the weather turned cold, this tree would lose all of its leaves within the span of a few days!

But even as these leaves began to drop, being drenched in such lovely colors on a drive down country roads is something I wanted to share with you.

Rain yesterday...snow today. It all brings about inevitable change in this lovely landscape. Whew! What a lucky girl to have dropped into the best of the season!

Back next week!

Wednesday Window on Provence

To everything,
turn, turn, turn
There is a season
turn, turn, turn...

The Byrds

It would seem that the time has arrived when we bring our summer ware in from the garden...or terrace...and put them up on a shelf....

...and put away our summer duds...

...packed with a stash of lavender, of course, for the long haul...

...and find a hook to hang our straw hats on a wall inside.

And on days like today, we put these away in a dry, warm place and trade them in...

...for one of these!

We've had rain all day in our fair Aix en Provence. It gave a generous soaking to all of the thirsty plants that live on the terrace. Good news for me (and them) as I am going to be away for a couple of weeks. I'll try to keep the Wednesday gig going while I'm gone...but the recipes...errr...I can only promise you that they are backing up and in line to be shared!

Bonjour à tous!

A picture being worth what it is, I'll keep the words to a minimum here. Enjoy.
