French country life

I have to say that Sweden has the most changeable weather in the world (at least it feels like that). It was Summer last week and now it is so cold that it feels as if the warmth has disappeared into an early hibernation and the Autumn is making an early appearance with full storm force. I feel frozen in my mind and there are loud facade renovations going on outside.

My thoughts drift off from clouds and cold to sun drenched lavendar fields in Provence and romantic small French villages. I’ve always been tempted to try the French country life and the desire is so strong today that I’d love to just book a ticket on the next flight and…bonjour France :) What would life be without dreams? … empty, grey and as depressing as the Autumn-like weather outside the window right now.

What do you dream about on grey, rainy days?

LOVE M

    Weather in Germany is as crazy as in Sweden, today we have luckily a really warm day. It will not even last till the weekend, then we have autumn weather again, that’s crazy, so I’m dreaming about being somewhere where it’s more or less steady warm and beautiful and making holiday plans, those lovely pictures make me dream and Provence that is always on my wishlist.

    Hi Maria, lovely and inspiring pictures of Provence. Weather in Canada is so changeable too. But the weather in Provence is better than here. I was there last Fall and it was beautiful. Have a great day!

    Oh the sud de france! I’ll be there for the entire month of August but until then I can only dream. Your pictures definitely help with the dreaming part!

    I’ve tried the French country life and highly recommend it – especially on gray days! I can almost smell the fields of lavender… I dream of warm sunny beaches on gray days and counting down the days until summer!

    Ja, så som det har stormat idag så tror man ju nästan att det är höst… :( Och åhhhh så vackert med lavendelfält, helt otroligt!
    Just precis nu drömmer jag mest om att försöka förstå skatteverkets momsdeklarationsblankett… suck!

    I feel much the same about the weather here in my part of the US. Yesterday it was in the 70 F
    and today in the 50’s. It will freeze tonight, and we will build a fire again in the fireplace to stay warm : )
    Your blog is beautiful. Thank you for your visit to mine!
    hugs,

    That sounds absolutely divine… I would run away in a heartbeat. The weather here in NYC is beautiful this weekend, but the surroundings are nothing compared to the romance of the French country side!
