The land is so pretty. I fell in love with Durance products when I went to France. Their scents are so pure.

Gigi said...

Oh so beautiful! I wish I could be there -- maybe next year (long sigh).
I have managed to grow one lonely little lavender plant in my back yard, and it has one tiny bloom on it. I have high hopes!

Thank you so much for coming by my new little blog, and for adding me to your Readers section. I so enjoy all your beautiful photos. Maybe someday I will be able to take this tour in person.
My maiden name is "Tolliver", which was the "Americanized" version of the name Taliferro, which I know is French. Many generations back, my father's family came from France,so there is a little piece of my heart over there.
With fond blessings, Debra

Such beauty and I can smell the fragrance from afar. I wish I had seen those candles and soaps when I was in Villefranche.

I am a big fan of the Durance products - I am burning Fleur d' Oranger candles at the moment. xv
