White Wednesday - memories of last summer in France

I was looking through some photographs of our cottage in France earlier today. I miss being there, so I often sit here and reminisce. I was looking at photographs I took last summer, and I noticed a lot of pics which sort of featured white. And when my reading list showed lots of White Wednesday posts today, I thought, hey why not, show a bit of French summer whites, lol. They are just photos of the bits and pieces in the garden ( field really, can't call it a garden yet, lol ), nothing special, but they remind me of fun days spent there.

The chippy white paint on the little door to the wine cellar -

A sweet enamel teal ight holder -

One of the quintessential French garden chairs -

Washing line under the old false acacia trees -

My doggies' most favourite garden toy -

Gorgeous big white snail shell -

These grow everywhere along the hedgerows of course -

White courgette -

A stem on a very old rose -

A wasp nest, removed from my little caravan ( which will become my little craftavan this summer, woohoo ) -

Old white granite stone steps to a friend's house -

and the white mist filling the valley on so many mornings -

I think we will be off to France again soon, probably next week sometime. Can't wait.

I am linking this post to the fabulous White Wednesday over at Faded Charm. Drool, there are soooo many fantastic White posts to drool over, go have a look!

Hi Liz,
I love your whites. The one photo with the flower? That's a queen Anne's Lace and I use to use them as little umbrellas for my dolls when I was a little girl. Thank you for sharing.

Have a great day!
