Summertime in France...

...and I'm thinking of
cool lagoons...


...glorious flowers tumbling over ancient balconies....



...flower shops filled with baskets of summer's bounty...


...canals gently flowing through the countryside...


...little waterfalls tumbling into lagoons...


...gargoyles and dolphins and moss-covered stone...


...glorious fountains in the center of towns...


...rivers running through villages... 


...and cool breezes blowing across acres of sunflowers!

Hi April...love those sunflowers! Looked for them this morning at the Farmer's market...but impossible to duplicate the glory of a whole field!
