Thinking of warmer weather and France

Well, today was really super cold here,  it started at 6 deg and went up to 20 deg, but the sun was oh so bright and warming :0 It made me start to think of warmer weather and started plotting out a Potager (french kitchen garden). This made me start to think about some of the lovely things of France, and thought I would share a few photos from our trips there.

Walking along the water, it was just so calming and peace. I can still feel the warmth and exhiliration of actually being in France.

 The photo above is a carousel, just out in the town centre, no other amusements were there. They are so beautiful and still quite a few around France.
 This is just a closer shot of the carousel. Can you see the little boy peering up over the horse with his sunglasses on ? 

 This was a little farmer's market, it was not huge, what  it lacked in size (vendors) it made up for with selection. Look at all of these gorgeous colors.
This is just the other side of the same little market. I think they had mostly fruits?

This was just a little stroll through a town called Metz, France. It was such a beautiful place to visit and walk around.

I hope you enjoyed your visit, do come back soon,
