FRANCE...A Dream Comes True!!...continues...(2)

When I think about my visit to the french countryside and why I enjoyed my visit so much a few things come to was the lovely homes with blue shutters, beautiful gardens, fresh fruits and vegetables at the markets, the delicious pastries, fresh breads and wonderful cheeses, the quaint villages and of course the people that made my stay feel like a dream!

My special friend R was the perfect host, from the word "go" she made me feel so welcome. She is such a good cook, gardener and home maker......and the two of us never had a dull moment!

A beautiful and quiet corner in R's garden.....

French lavender........everything smelled so wonderful in her garden!

What a joy of life it was to sit and relax in this beautiful garden with its lovely smells of lavender, rosemary and basil, beautiful quiet corners, the sound of water dripping from a fountain with a special friend that made me feel so welcome........THE JOYS OF LIFE!

Till next time when I continue with my journey in the french countryside..........
