Tour France: Lavender, Poppies, Perched villages and colorful markets. In May and June you cannot help but celebrate the stunning beauty of Southern France. Van Gogh, below, painted this nearby. It’s striking in both its creativity, and it’s actual depiction of what Provence looks and feels like. The red coloration in the field probably represents the poppy fields that are so prevalent in May and early June.
An amazing photograph taken by a client last June (2014). The field is just down the hill, and visible from our inn.
Another great photo by the same client, this time of the painted buildings in a nearby village where we saw the ochre ‘mines’ (pigmentation used to make the paints on these buildings).
Poppies and olive trees, some of the signature foliage of Provence.
The lavender fields of Provence smell as beautiful as they look.
Vines and poppies, side by side, irresistible.
Setting up for the photo…
