photos of wild flowers, a few trees and flowering bushes that catch my eye with the occasional pet photo.

This is one of our favourite places to walk, long, flat dirt roads, the canal runs quietly by the picnic table that sits under the umpteen birch, cypress, and alders, the fields are full of wild goodies, smelly bits and shade so everyone is happy.   

We were surprized at the size of the dandelion that sits behind Ebéne. 

Ebéne checking his wild flower notes.

This young creature was as big as a car!!

The Poppies in the Vaucluse have begun to appear, here if you look to the back and left of the photo some of you will recognize the Château de Thouzon.
