Fleur de Lis
Thank you for your kind comments about my future departure from France. I really appreciated reading all of them. You haven't gotten rid of me yet... I will be in France for another month.
For the last couple of days I took a short trip to Bordeaux to stay with my son's friend in the Margaux area. His friend's family owns a vineyard and I stayed there with the kids.
I just got back today -- for the last couple of days my husband posted items I'd previously written -- and I am really exhausted. So let me just tell you that I had a wonderful time and that I'll give you details tomorrow.
Until then... when I arrived the flowers were starting to lose their beauty. In fact, the day after I arrived a storm pretty much wiped them out. The grandmother, the owner of the estate took me outside the first night and proudly showed me her patch of white "fleur de lis" flowers so well known in France.
As I said, more tomorrow, but I wanted to share a picture of the building where we stayed. I love these colors of France... the yellow/cream/orange of the building walls and the blue of the shutters. Wouldn't those colors look lovely in a kitchen in DC??
