Flowers for the First of the Month

Beautiful blooms and gardens from my trip.



Monet

Versailles



train stations of Alsace

Ste Marie aux Mines

Mulhouse

I had a wonderful trip. There were beautiful flowers and gardens everywhere.
Inspiration from landscape, museum visits,and the The European Patchwork Meeting which I will share with you all over the next few weeks. 

A special THANK YOU to Valentina and her family for their wonderful hospitality. My trip was so much richer for the generosity.




I am glad to be home and slowly settling back into life. I wish you all a good weekend and I promise to visit you all soon.  Terry

Welcome back!

Lovely photos. I enjoy looking at other people's holiday shots, although they do make me wish I was there myself!

Welcome Home Terry!! Your photos are wonderful and have brought back memories of my trip to France a few years ago. I loved all the overflowing planters of beautiful blooms and foliage in the towns. Versailles is one of the most amazing places I've ever seen and Monet's garden deserves to be iconic. I hope you're recovering well from the jet leg.
