Last week’s impromptu ‘Reflections‘ challenge hosted by Ailsa was so much fun, she asked if we could do it again? She went on to say “There are many other photo challenges out there, but how about one with a travel theme? I love finding out about great places waiting to be discovered, and it doesn’t have to be an exotic location, either. What’s everyday in your part of the world is exotic to someone who doesn’t live there.” Curiously enough, the WordPress weekly challenge is also on the theme of summer so I’ve linked this post there too.
We have been visiting Provence on and off over the years and I never tire of the landscape and the flowers. Early summer brings masses of purple irises, brilliant poppies, sunflowers and fields and fields of lavender.

all of these remind me of summers spent in the cicada-buzzing heat, waves of lavender perfume washing over you as you drive past the fields
