Meanderings through all that makes life in a small town in Provence worth while...
Always thrilled to have you visiting chez moi... :)
I hope I didn't disappoint...
A lovely escape from threats of Tropical Storm Andrea. I'm right in the midst, so far mini tornado was bit inland, water spout a bit south, and minor flooding downtown and we're fine here. Plants are delighted, despite some breakage. In a break in the pounding rain, I went to the street to pick up my mail and saw that it has been so storm dark, now 3:30 in the afternoon, the night blooming jasmine ares blooming and a sole butterfly was flitting about it, drunk! All the rest of my front sidewalk buddies, i.e., 3 kinds of butterflies, two kinds of bees, squirrels, 7 kinds of birds and a community of geckos are out of the storm as are the more occasional raccoons, armadillos, snakes, toads and frogs.
Joan, while I love hearing about your wildlife community (usually a far more reliable lot than the human kind), I admit you have me worried! Buckle down. I know you are a trooper but stay safe and out of harms way please.
What an enchanting post you wrote Heather. Marseille seems mysterious and lovely.
Oh thank you, Loree--this was nothing compared to your most recent! And yes...it is!
A wonderful tribute to thyme -- I've been planning a similar post from Crete - your photos are so similar to some I took that I had to think twice about where you were. Happy Guesting and Happy Weekend.
Great minds! Bisous et Bon Weekend,H
Why don't more Americans treasure these scenes??who the heck likes lawns? I bet there were a million birds there!We need to change the perception! This is enormous beauty! And wonderful for animals, birds, insects!americans go to Europe; take millions of pictures; and then forget. The have huge lawns.....pesticides.....all that stuff!This weekend there is a marvelous workshop at my house about organic gardening!!Brava!!
Brava to Mother Nature! She did all the work here. And it is so true, the whole idea of "lawns" seem so crazily outdated?!?
Very beautiful, I love the smell of thyme underfoot.
Me too, Roxane plus rosemary and sage...
Awww Heather, just by looking at your photographs I can smell the thyme! What a peaceful wonderful feeling, I wouldn't mind napping there too.Lovely!
Somehow, Heather, with all these fabulous posts, I doubt you do much napping. There's a real yin and yang feeling to this piece and the one over at BLW's site. Over and over again, you make me want to see your part of the world. Every last bit of it.Merci beaucoup, my friend.
