Montpellier is full of flowering laurier and it looks fantastic!
This is a shot taken down the road from where I live.
We went to an historic, annual gathering of old sailing boats in Sete , just along the coast from Montpellier.
Here are some pictures of the galleons and the water ways.
Doesn't this look great?
Today I went for an early Christmas lunch with the 'gals'. We chose a top notch Montpellier restaurant 'La Reserve Rimbaud'.
This was my dessert.
#French patisserie looks fantastic, tastes fantastic and... takes hours to make - as a group of us discovered in this workshop at "Passion Delice" . And we got to take home the goodies!
My sister came to visit and I took her to lunch at my favourite Creperie in downtown Montpellier. She had a classic savoury crepe with ham, cheese and egg, traditionally from the north of France - yum
I love gardening and when I lived in the UK I had an allotment.
Now, in Montpellier, France, I have my Mediterranean garden.
We have a long, dry summer and many plants flower early after the spring rainfall.
Bulbs do particularly well.
Here's a photo of my garden and the lovely early daffodils and violets.
About forty minutes drive from my house, this is 'La Petite Camargue' - a lovely landscape of marshes and lakes. Plus there's a great cycle track for roller blading with my daughter!
