About backyardprovence

I was finally able to realized my dream of living in France when I moved here in 2010. I love to read,I love history and road trips. I want to be doing anything outside in the fresh air. I want to have an entire room devoted to a personal library.

  1. Lovely! You’ve really captured the best of the region…and we were just at Sanary today..and actually last Saturday too. I love that boulangerie, they always have the most gorgeous displays! Well done 🙂

  2. Very lovely, but no cheese pics!

    I love your photographs. They’re always gorgeous! The view from Saturnin-les-Apt is stunning.

  4. Wonderful photos! That last picture of the pastries just made me so hungry.

  5. Ah – this takes me back to a wonderful cycling holiday I spent in that area, some years ago. It was very hot and the hills were steep but it was magnificent.

    • Cycling is something I have yet to do here, Jenny. Our bikes are still boxed up from the move. I really need to get those out and go for an evening ride. It’s a great way to see Provence 🙂

  6. Your pictures are beautiful! You have captured some of the wonderful beauty of Provence. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

    • Thanks Michel! I love to take photos. Thanks goodness we’re in the age of digital! My mom use to just go crazy when I was kid cuz I would take all these photos and some wouldn’t come out but you still had to pay for the processing!

  7. Wow! These are all so different and compelling. Great choices.
