Travel reminiscences from … Avignon, Provence

I’m having difficulty keeping to the ‘Fave Five Photos’ !!   So I shall change the ‘series’  to travel reminiscences but it won’t be an overload of photos  ;)!!!!

I love, love, love lavender!  I have many bushes in my garden.  I’m always picking the flowers and leaves.   I bundle flowers together to put on prezzies, into vases and wherever I can in my house.  I use them for decorating cakes.  I haven’t, as yet, put them in cakes and muffins, but I have added a flower to my sugar bowl.

A dream come true … travelling through Provence towards Avignon passing field upon field of lavender .. and sunflowers (!)  I wasn’t expecting to see so many fields of sunflowers!  What a colourful contrast!

Imagine walking through rows and rows of lavender with that touchy-feely experience … and breathe … long and deep !

  1. Beautiful pictures and a great lavender themed post. I bet those little figures cost a fortune
