Beautiful Colours & Flavours of Provence......

~Soupe a l'oignon Francais and Tarte au Citron~

As you can tell I am totally in love with
the rich tapestry that makes up Provence.
here in Australia I get the same feeling
when stepping off the plane in northern Queensland.
That warmth that envelopes me and
puts a smile on my face
it's indescribable !!



~pretty little village of Eygalieres~

My very best memories are of the people~
the food and the beautiful deep rich colours
Sunflowers~ Lavenders
and village markets with their abundance
of fruits & vegetables in every colour



I have loved the pretty collages that other people
use from time to time on their posts
& so this is my first attempt
I hope you like it.

Hi Anne- I used Picasa 3 - so much fun editing photos - some times it looks good other-times a disaster !!

Your collage works beautifully! They are fun to do, no?
Oh Provence: I dream of it often. We rented a house in Goult one September and are (sort of??) planning something again. We shall see!

Quelle surprise Eygalières, j'habite là et c'était le jour où le village se remettait à l'heure de la foire de la Ste Thérèse avec les costumes d'autrefois....En plus en ce début du mois d'octobre il faisait un temps merveilleux et l'ambiance était vraiment sympathique, j'ai vraiment apprécié cestte journée. Bravo pour la photo devant la librairie du village, nous nous sommes peut-être croisées
