Golden Days in Beautiful Provence.....



I know that I've posted this photo before
But I hope you enjoy it.
It speaks to me about everything I love in Provence
Golden sunfilled days
Lunch on the Terrace
poulet roti, with jugs of freshly pressed lemon-ade
A good chair to sit back and relax.
Nothing too complicated
~I love the simple life~

Not long now as I count the days to my return to France at the end of March. May not quite be warm enough to eat on the terrace then but it will be just around the corner :)) Diane

I was in Provence last week for 3 days--very different to go in the winter when many shops were closed, and the temperatures were in the 30-40's. The serendipity was that we had some of the spot of tourist interest all to ourselves. Can you imagine being the only ones at Les Baux and Pont du Gard? Looking forward to going back when it's warm....

Makes you dream of summer days! ... Already spring would make me happy! :-)

Lovely photo - and the great thing about Provence is that whenever the sun comes out, even in winter, it can be warm enough to sit outside...

Delightful photo !


Not quite the same in winter - how I long for warmer days !
