13 Comments Post a comment
  1. Tres jolie! Such a beautiful colour – the scent from all the lavender wafting through the air must be wonderful too 🙂 Thanks for liking my post “Timeless Classics:La Belle Paris” on my “new” blog it’s great to get positive feedback! I’m enjoying browsing through your beautiful website too – we once had plans to move to France from the UK but ended up moving to Australia instead! Best wishes for your next move too kind regards Rosemary (Le Chic En Rose) 🙂

    • Thank you very much and thanks for the comments. Do you enjoy living in Oz? I have always wanted to go there and New Zealand too…they are at the top of my list. Kind regards right back at you.

      • Hi thanks for your reply 🙂 Yes we do enjoy living in Australia – we have lived in both Perth Western Australia (our present home) and Melbourne in Victoria in the south east both very different places. It would take me forever to describe everywhere it’s such a vast country and there is so much to see and do. Melbourne has quite a European vibe, Perth has expanded enormously in the past 20 years or so – it has a Mediterranean climate and is way more cosmopolitan than when we first came (in 1990). It’s also closer (by about 4 hours) to Europe and with elderly parents and extended family in the Uk (plus with our younger daughter moving to London next month) we aim to continue to come to Europe once a year. I also have family in NZ and that’s a beautiful place too. I’ve been to Wellington in the North Island and the South Island which is magnificent – Akaroa on the east coast was colonised by the French so all the streets are Rue de….. etc. Queenstown is set in the NZ Alps and Christchurch is encouraging tourists back after the earthquake hit the centre hard a few years back. So they are both worth visiting in their different ways! I will do some more posts on my adopted homeland – of course living here one takes it for granted but there’s some really interesting places I can highlight and may be of interest to others planning a visit! Best wishes for your future travel plans, kind regards Rosemary 🙂

      • Thank you. I’m just about in a major state of FREAK OUT as our time in France ticks away. So much to do and so very sad to be leaving.

      • Yes it must be a stressful time you want to make the most of your last few weeks – endings/new beginnings are always bittersweet! I am feeling a bit the same with just over 3 weeks until my younger daughter moves half way across the world am enjoying all the fun times but know I will be seeing her off on new adventures soon. Your blog is a wonderful record of your time in France – here’s to future travels!

  2. How beautiful it is this France of ours … your pictures are perfect (those photographed and those crafted with words) and surely put a smile on the most reluctant face 🙂

    • Come down south where the lavender scent blows in the wind and there is nothing but glorious purple every which way you look.

    Gorgeous! I realized as I was admiring your photos that I was also smelling lavender in the air. Talk about the power of suggestion…and of beautiful pictures!
