Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Spring-Time in Brittany ............

Brittany is one of the prettiest area's in rural France
especially at spring-time with delicate blossom trees
laden in soft pink and white petals
under-pined with snowdrops, crocuses
and elegant tall stemmed tulips

Heading Home ....

~   Caromb  Provence   ~
heading home
with baguette in hand
I imagine Madame at home preparing the mid-day meal
something really provincial like ratatouille or tarte tropezienne
She eagerly awaits the return of Monsieur with a freshly baked crunchy baguette
 an integral part of every Provencial meal.

touches of turquoise .........

~   palais garnier    ~ 
amid the soft gentle colours of Paris
are brushes of magnificent deep coppery turquoises
I love the way this dome stands out against a background of soft grey rooftops
with their muted terracotta chimney pots

  The Coupole - Galleries La -Fayette   ~
not only a shopping complex which is a joy to visit
for it's wealth of perfumes, shoes and designer clothes
 plus those wonderful Pierre-Herme macarons !!
but if you look up you are encompassed in beauty from above.

dog-eared and crumpled .......

wonderful old used and antiquarian books are to found
in the tiny dark green bouquinist stalls along le Seine.
I could spend many happy hours thumbing through
delicate crumpled dog-eared pages
pondering not only on the story contained in the book
but the story of the book itself
