In The Garden
The second installment from Normandy is a few shots taken in and around Sharon's Pretty Garden... My secret garden... My answer to Monet's Garden as I didn't manage to make it to Giverny.. [slacker that I am] ..
I have so many shots of the gardens surrounding the cottage and house, that it was tough to try and limit it to these few hand selected shots, chosen for your viewing pleasure!!! As typical of Sharon, it is the little details that one can find here and there that made it so special for me.. as you know .. I'm a detail girl.. so the smattering of Brocante on windowsills and door stoops made my stay all the more pleasant.. Especially considering some of that Brocante followed me home. Australia Post is wondering what I've been up to!!! Don't worry.. I left some Brocante there for you too!!!
Speaking of Brocante.. I'm afraid I'm going to disappoint some people.. I've been rummaging through my shots of our Brocanting Trip Into Deepest Normandy.. and found I have very few of the actual Brocantes.. I think I was too distracted with the wares laid out before me to remember to take shots.. But there are plenty of the surrounding countryside.. as beautiful as you can imagine.. and enough of my own treasures and the subsequent 'Loot Shoot' as Sharon would say.. to hopefully fulfill your need for Brocante envy...
It's going to be tough deciding what to put up next.. Should I move on to Paris with the next post? I can always come back later to Normandy and the 'Brocanting Trip Into Deepest Normandy'.... With so many shots I think the chronological thing might bring me undone... Not to mention I've almost filled my Picasa Albums [ooops.. some cleanup is required!] ....
What do you think guys? What would YOU like to see next?
Have A Lovely Weekend Y'All
Thank You to all who have been visiting and leaving such lovely comments.. And HI to my new followers. I've been home a week and only just now starting to catch up with everyone's blogs.. It's a slow process so still making the rounds. Meanwhile, I hope this post allows you to imagine you are in Normandy.
Even just for a minute!
