YES, there is something to look forward to ! In a week time I will be approximately where you are now. Hope my pictures will look pretty much like yours.

It was a "fig tatin" that my friend made. It was delicious!
Hope you get some beach time soon.

Those are griottes, the sour cherries. I love them!
And the fig pie was like a tarte tatin, made with figs. it was fabulous!

Yes it is, good guess!

merci :)

Food, Fun
I don't have a recipe, unfortunately. It was and experiment by a friend of ours, but basically a tarte tatin made with fresh figs. Please let me know if you give it a try.

Hope you can get back to France soon. I know how much you love it.

There are so many reasons to love summer here!

Very happy that you liked them. Hope you get your sangria on the beach soon!

Thank you. :)

Merci! I hope to.
Wishing you a fantastic summer as well.

It is easy to find great shots here in the south. I'm sure your photos will be wonderful and I look forward to seeing them.
Have a great trip.

What a great post! I love the bilingual use of the "s" sound. It feels like summer here too...

Jennifer said...

We deserve a bit of summer after the dismal, cold spring we've had down here!

Beautifully captured mood. Lush and gorgeous and sweet.

I love summer.... I think it has finally decided to show it's face.
And I found a plum tree on our property. Life is good. You pics are perfect.

Amazing! While I love Paris I could use some of that wonderful beachy fun!

Jennifer said...

Merci! These are some of my favorite things of the season.

Lucky you with a plum tree! What kind?
Glad you enjoyed the photos.

Enjoy your time in Paris and next time you can come down here to the beach.
Or enjoy Paris Plage while you're there. :)
