A Magic Moment

On our way back from the oil mill in Mirabel-aux-Baronnies where we delivered the first big batch of our just harvested olives to be pressed into "the gold of Provence" as our wonderful olive oil is called we stopped for a quick coffee at our much beloved village square in Villedieu. The huge old plane trees had just been pruned and so you can see just how beautiful a day in Provence can be - at the end of November...


  1. Lovely, just lovely. I wish I could have been there.

  2. Hi Susan, when you'll be here, the plane trees will have their leaves back, but I promise: the sky will be just as blue!

  3. I love Villedieu and we go often when we are in Provence. We are very excited that friends who live in Villedieu and visiting their son in San Francisco for Thanksgiving are coming to eat our Bistro Des Copains Tuesday night.
