Most of my time in France is spent either in the country or small towns, so I have lots of photos of flowers, plants, and landscapes.  This beautiful bit of meadow was not far from my s-i-l and b-i-l’s house.

Sorry if I didn’t get to your blog yesterday.  Lots going on in these last days before I leave, including a big mulching job, errands, picking up (but not filling out yet) job applications for fall, etc., etc.  Life just gets in the way sometimes.  🙂

If I were a bee, I’d see this view every day, over and over, drunk with joy and pollen.  I wouldn’t need an iPhone camera.  I’d have my wings.

Our wanderings take us to Philadelphia  for the weekend (with an overnight stop in Akron, Ohio on the way), so I’ll be MIA until Monday, although I might be on Instagram.  Just to tide you over, here are some beautiful blooms from my visit to Descanso Gardens.  Have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend.
