dawn in Normandy

by Sharon Santoni
[blank]This morning saw me hanging around waiting for a 
friend at dawn … these things happen!
 
It was cold but beautiful, and I didn’t mind the wait one little bit.[blank]
 
[blank]Grabbed my camera and clicked away at an empty field, 
much to the surprise of the rare car that drove by.[blank]
 
[blank]My clients this weekend left with a truck full of goodies,
 but the hours flew past so quickly that I had no time to 
buy for myself and no time to take pictures of their loot.[blank]
[blank]Just a couple of villages we drove through[blank]

 

[blank]Next weekend is my April tour, and then,
 I promise you lots of brocante pics!
 
Hope you have had a wonderful weekend, whether 
you are entering spring or leaving the summer.
 
Thank you for reading me.[blank]

Lovely pictures, but looks cold, I'm glad I was still tucked up in bed beneath my duvet and was able to later enjoy coffee in the sunshine on my terrace.

Now these photographs were worth waiting for. Thank you for sharing such beauty. Hi Sharon enjoy the week ahead. Regards Esther from Sydney. PS thinking of the wonderful way you have with flower arranging do you have Delbard Roses close by they have the Painter's Collection I know you would love Henri Matisse, Paul Cezanne, Maurice Utrillo. They have the most beautiful roses too many to choose from.

Thank you for the beautiful pictures. Such a wonderful reminder that the sun always comes out again. Here in the midwest of the US the sun is shining once again after record flooding that destroyed much for many. My home is high and dry, thank God, but my lovely woods that were just starting to show the signs of spring were ravished by our creek that turned into a raging river. Just a "bit" more spring clean-up than I had originally planned. The floods of life come, as do the trials, but the sun always comes out again.

Beautiful photos, Sharon! It is easy to get "lost" just gazing at each picture and think about all the history while imagining all the people of yesteryear wandering about the quaint streets in the village and farmers and kids working and walking the fields. Thanks for sharing your beautiful country!
