Sunday Stills: Potluck…Provençal doorways

When I see the word “potluck”, I think of those wonderful meals at church where everyone brings their specialty to share and we almost all eat too much.  My dad used to hate these and would only eat when my mom brought, but he’s mellowed over the years and now enjoys them, too.  Potlucks are usually heavy on entrees (meat and cheese entrees in particular)  and desserts and light on lots of healthy alternatives.  This week’s “Sunday Stills” challenge “Potluck” will have no discernible calories and will be full of healthy, delicious photos.

To have a challenge that allows me to choose what I want is great, right?  It is, but it’s also overwhelming when I look at all the photos I have and want to share.  But I’ll put my nose to the grindstone and pick out a couple that I think you might enjoy on this finally-spring-like Sunday in the Chicago area.  To find all the entries for the week’s “Sunday Stills: Potluck”, click on the words.  Then follow the links to lots of great photos.

    Well, you know perfectly well you’ll get me every time with pic.s from Provençal … and beautiful they are.
    Did you get my reply to yours? – it hasn’t gone into your spam mail again …?

    • No, I got it and very much appreciate it. We were out all yesterday afternoon and evening and I’m just up and getting ready for church now. Thanks! I look forward to hearing what your friend thinks, too.

    How fun that your dad would only eat what your momma brought – and glad he mellowed – but sometimes I do not easily enjoy the elections – and I try not to worry about the kitchens they came from – but have had to walk by a many of sines over the years (lol)
    anyhow, loved your stun day stills – especially the first one – the purple really spoke to me. 🙂

    okay -auto correct messed up my sentence (and I was rushing I Guess). Meant to say “selections” and noted that I have to pass on having many pot luck “SIDE” dishes over the years…. ha ha

  6. Beautiful captures, Janet. 🙂

  8. Exquisite! Just makes me want to bask in the sun & soak in these peaceful surroundings…in short living in its true sense 🙂

  9. So much beauty! I see stories in each picture. Perfect for inspiring my muse.
