Vicki Archer's home from "My French Life'
I have very fond memories of Provence all of which came flooding back after recently reading Vicki Archer's beautiful book 'My French Life'. I love everything about Provence ~ from the fields of lavender and sunflowers to it's vine covered rolling hills and olive groves. I love the charm of the villages with their cobbled streets, narrow alleys, shady plane trees and crumbling buildings with their blue timber shutters. The markets are full of colour and vibrancy - the smell of freshly baked bread, dried lavender and handmade soap to tempt you. Your trip will be well rewarded with local wine, olives and honey, fresh herbs and creamy cheeses. The colours of Provence are also intoxicating, there are splashes of purple, blue and yellow everywhere you look. If you don't have a trip to Provence planned in the near future then pick up a copy of one of Vicky Archer's books and let your imagination wander!
