that looks, unsurprisingly, very much like Corse. thanks for the new word. i always called the brush area like that maquis, but it's nice to have another word for it too.

I've been told that it looks like Corsica.
Garrigue has the same meaning as Maquis. Maquis is the Provençal word for the Mediterranean scrub brush that covers much of this area.

I know! We hear them shooting up in the hills every Wednesday and Sunday. I'm hoping to be given a gift of a leg sometime this winter.
