Even when the sun is not shining the French countryside is beautiful at this time of year, whilst running an errand the other day, I took a wrong turn and got lost, after living here for nearly nine years, I still get lost and constantly discover new and beautiful things. Down here in deepest France the countryside is a labyrinth of windy country lanes and narrow tracks which often lead to small villages and hamlets.
This is my favourite time of year, the cycle has begun again and everything is coming back to life it is like witnessing the greening of the earth. Whilst getting lost I discovered a whole new landscape, although only a few miles away from where we live this landscape is totally different, as you have seen from previous posts our landscape is breathtaking and dramatic, this landscape is a lot softer, gentle rolling hills, hedgerows and green, green fields.
If you are coming to France this year, get off the auto routes and take the D roads and if you get lost, enjoy it!
Whilst I was lost I found this very unusual and romantic, abandoned farmhouse in a tiny hamlet, I am intrigued by it, you don't often see farmhouses with turrets! I wonder what the story is, I am going to have to find out more about it.
Back to our garden we have lots of gorgeous white blooms in flower at the moment.
