25 years ago today we arrived in France to live.
With my two Labrador dogs in the back of the car
with loads of boxes & bags pushed in to make them safe.
I can still remember driving through northern France
seeing fields of yellow for miles & miles.
It was such a feeling of what summers were going to be like.
I hoped they would be growing in the fields near where we were going to be living.
and they were.
This is what I see whilst driving to our nearest Boulangerie
or on my way to the hairdressers.
Certainly a joy to see.
I still smile & pinch myself seeing such beauty.
To see so many flowers turning their heads in the same direction facing the sun,
makes me think of a crowd of sunbathers lying on the beach getting a tan.
Soon they will be harvested and sent to make Sunflower oil.
In the meantime I'll savour the sunny days.
Enjoy your summer whether you are at home or away on holiday.
