Sense of summer



A rustling in my head and shuffling of my feet. Bending over head down deep. Taking in the scent of the earth, the prickle of wheat upon my skin. It is summer we are in. Loving the light as it pours forth to glow. A forever sense of possibility. Hello. Hello...

I want to thank you all so dearly for being here and for all the joy you bring...


Bon weekend!

  2. I really do hope that you get to meet him, oh my talk about a softy! He would follow you around all moon-eyed and doing his slow tail wag special to charm you, I know it!

    Bon weekend à toi aussi et bisous...

  3. The bright sunshine is clarifying every tone, every hue of the beautifully bright colours - which it only can in high summer. Especially in the first two images. How much more intense colour becomes under a summer sun! You must be counting down the days till your sister arrives, I fancy? Have a beautifully, deliriously summer-ish weekend!! xx

    1. She is arriving on Monday morning!! Hooray! I am just so excited. :)

      And yes, isn't the color so strong? It looks like I have been dipping into the Photoshop big time but it really was that way!

      Wishing you a wonderful weekend too. Stay warm!

  4. Thank you for reminding me of the beauty (and puppy) that I will be seeing with my own eyes in THREE DAYS!!! It's especially tantalizing since the last time I was in Arles was in the middle of a freezing winter!!! See you soooo soon! : )

  5. Gorgeous bits of summer here, Heather. I can almost smell the warm Provence soil from here...which is nice, because looking out my window, you would think it was fall. How wonderful that your sister's arrival is just a few days away. I'm sure she will love summer in Provence. Hope you have a wonderful weekend full of delicious anticipation!!! XO

    1. Merci Jeanne--already I can barely sleep at night--like a kid before his birthday party!

      Wishing some sun for you this weekend and some inspiration with your lovely painting as well...

  6. Even Ben's visage has a rosy glow in that light. Wishing you a wonderful weekend and that time slows down so that you can savor every moment with your sister.

    1. I wish you had been there with Karina, Judith. That warm magenta glow was so surreal...

  7. Exquisite words to accompany equally exquisite photographs. (O que tu me donnes envie de visiter ce coin de la France que je ne connais pas ! Trois ans depuis mon dernier voyage à Paris; j'ai l'impression que j'en souffre...)

    Bon weekend to you as well, in your hot part of the world, from mine.

  8. Que tu connais pas?! Comment c'est possible? Une femme d'une telle finesse qui connaît pas la Provence? Tut, tut. Il faut qu'on travaille sur ça...n'est pas? :)

    Bon weekend à toi aussi et merci encore pour tous ce que tu fait!

  9. Enjoy your summer. Ah I see you still have poppies. Ours lasted till early June. Now almost everything is dry. In some ways it looks a bit sad.

    1. The heat of summer will soon take these away too. I imagine Malta as being extremely hot in summer, no?

    1. Natalie, as always compliments about my photos mean so much coming from you!

      And yes, I can't wait to see her and show her all of the beauty of Provence. For her to meet Ben. To cook yummy things and just enjoy being in each others company...
