From St-Rémy you can get to sooo many places..
in fact if we go back..we will just stay there and drive farther for the small day trips..as the higher places ..that we have seen..we won't return..BEAUTIFUL..but we remember now..we went in 2008..and went back twice in areas while staying in Bar-Sur-Loup..so because these towns are well known to us..we would skip Les Alpes Maritimes next time..albeit we do not know..Cannes well..Nice..Menton..St-Tropez..etc..we just quickly go and come back..a 2 hr walk along the Mediterranean..
It's just that the driving in those higher elevations ..well I have mentioned it..scary.
From St-Rémy you can have daily adventures.. get in the car and go..
many charming towns are within easy driving distance..such as Fontvielle..and Maussane Les Alpilles.
Fontvielle is home to the Alphonse Daudet Moulin and Montban castle..if you go..wear better shoes than espadrilles;) It's a walk to the moulin;)
I love my espadrilles..and you can get some at most markets ..
all colors..charming little foot pleasers.
In Fontvielle some streets we walked were just loaded with charm..small cute..adorable..one man had classical music playing and came out to chat w/ us..right next to that house up there:)
Look at that red door and her Zen garden out front..so many people in small towns..and larger ones..make their homes so darned adorable outside..
they say:"Come in"!!
Maussane..is also old world charm..and so many Deux Chevaux..really..so many..and an ancien lavoir..
Inaugurated in 1865.It is magnificent.
Ap 2000 is the population w/ ap 320 days of sun per year.
Imagine walking along a beautiful street..and right there..this♥
Now even Jacques and I look in the widows of realtors offices..I was after all..a realtor for almost 30 yrs.
above..ap $4 million euros give or take;)
Our offer was refused;)Kidding.. no offer:)
The day trips from where one stays in Provence makes that one trip..so many trips♥
In the kitchen I made Isabelle Lambert's FABULOUS date squares w/ apples! I have never made w/ apples..w/ oj yes with coffe yes..never with apples as and add-in..
Taking an online class that I am learning a lot about mixed media from..I am so bad:( THis one turned out ok and I was excited..I made a tall Fancy Lassie..it's in the mail..it's not good:( The class has wonderful tips and the artist is amazing Kate Thompson..my class is Fancy Lassies..
My garden journal for this last week of October..the big thing is..
Garlic is planted..over 100 bulbs.
So you divide the big bulb..not grocery store garlic..and plant the cloves individually..pointy side up..like tulips..
I use my dibber..it was a gift years ago..and ever since I started w/ garlic I use it..I don't think I have followed the rules for my garlic..certainly not:) But it works ..I eyeball the space between..what looks comfortable for them:)
Speaking of tulips I thought I was planting 50..they are annuals here.. at least 12 bulbs were rotten..dust..I mentioned it at Costco and she said bring the bag back full..lol..no.
Have a great weekend..week..~
