One of the best place I'd ever been. I would love to go back here again if I have the time.

Amazing landscapes! Great photos.

Ooh, it's stunning! :)


Yes Lucy, the tall skinny trees are cypress pines. They grow well here in Australia too. Your photos are gorgeous and I felt like I was there with you. I would like to visit Provence one day and wander through these beautiful villages.


So many pretty pictures.. it will take me several visits to get through them all.


Thanks for sharing your life with us, from your everyday family life to such special moments as visiting Provence and taking us on a tour through gorgeous villages. Glad you were able to have such a great experience and share it with us.

Hi, lovely pictures and so glad you enjoyed your time in France.

Don't know if this information is of any use to you, in fact, it's a bit sad. As I was driving to see my daughter and baby grandson today, I passed the only 'proper' wool shop in our area, The Village Wool Shop in a small village called Crawshawbooth in Rossendale. Poor lady is selling up and has a closing down sale on. I went in as I needed buttons for baby grandson's jumper I'm knitting him and came out with a lovely ball of that fancy scarf wool (£4 as it was a bit frayed at one point) and a pattern book for jumpers. I noticed that the lovely lady (who offered me chocolate, nice!) stocks the Rowan wool that you use. We are not that far away from you, maybe this would be an ideal opportunity to stock up while the sale is on. I don't wish to profit from the misfortune of this business closing down, but times are tough in the Rossendale Valley, lots of unemployment and so on.


I hope to be there very soon. I see the Mont. Ventoux and the lovely view on les Alpilles.


I have been to the Abbey, so beautiful! There was no lavender there then either. Your trip is bringing back such fond memories.


Welcome back Lucy- I've missed you! It looks as if you've had a wonderful colourful time- thanks for brightening up my damp grey day! Your pictures are fabulous and I hope you are feeling positive again! can't wait to see what you've been making in sunny Provence

i love how you travel, having an appreciation for everything is so lovely.


I LOVE that last picture. It is so peaceful and yet it makes you wonder just what's around the bend. And the reflections! They are so clear.
You are a brave lot, going around those bends. It must have been terrifying! You make us all feel that we must go to Provence quick, but you have already given us a full tour of it. Still....................

P.S I have written other comments, but under the name of Artmaker- sorry, that blog is no more, I have redesigned it and re-made and given it a new address, which is down below.

Take a look at this place that I live near, Castle Farm Shoreham.I often visit the shop and I have been on their tour.I often pass by,sometimes down the country lanes via Eynsford poppy field the views and smell are fantastic.The smell from the fields is there all year round.They grow Lavandin Grosso the plants that are grown in Provence.Another place near me is Downderry Nursery where I have purchased my various Lavender plants from. Enjoy!
