Shades of purple and terracotta

Under a big cypress, the stairs of the old cottage

Since some days, nature seems to awaken from its long winter sleep.

Le Prince Jardinier apron Old Ampholia pots

These first rays spring sunshine invite us to share, for an afternoon, the warm welcome of Nicole and Jean-Jacques of the pottery "Ampholia" at Anduze.

Old Ampholia pots Decoration purple and terracotta

And the desire to arrange pots in front of a patined door of an old "mazet" (cottage) where I hang an "Le Prince Jardinier" apron.

The colours in your courtyard are fantastic, rich and warm, so inviting it makes me want to hop on a plane a pop over straight away.
