Photo du Jour - Driving


This is the view through the windshield whenever we drive anywhere right now.

The vendange is almost over though. The purple grapes hanging in the vineyards have almost all been picked and taken to be crushed.
The yeasty, musty aroma of fermenting grapes fills the air. Pin It

They've picked up the pace here, too (harvesting, not speed of tractors on roads).

I think they're seeing the weather change and want to get everything in before it gets wet.

Hi
I enjoy reading your Blog.
My husband & I have traveled to France for the past 5 years. We decided to stay in the US this year!!
We have stayed in Paris & have also visited Auch area & the area near St. Zachary.

I think that might be happening here too. Rain is predicted this weekend.

Hopefully you'll come back to France next year!

I can't stop telling you this LouLou, but through your blog I feel like I'm always in France!

I haven't been around the blog world for a while, but coming back here is absolutely wonderful. Gorgeous pictures!
