We've not been having the best weather recently. This is a pretty typical scene from the week, but on Monday it was sunny and warm. Perfect for a walk down to the bakery to pick up the lunchtime baguette. I was on my own so I grabbed my camera and took the long way round with the intention of capturing some of the charming French features of our neighbourhood for you.
The first thing I saw as I walked out the gate though was this bright yellow hunk of America parked outside my neighbour's house! Never seen it before and quite a step up from the beat up scooters we usually see around here.
Having been dazzled by that I found myself seeing yellow wherever I looked.
Flowers, of course. Dandelions and buttercups are everywhere at the moment.
House signs. Love the old tile peeking out behind the new numbers.
Bonus Berry Blog points if you know what Chevrefeuille is!
A flash of yellow decoration on this house in the trees.
This cheerful chap is a a well known local but I'd never noticed the yellow fleur de lis decorating his wall before.
...and municipal planting in full golden bloom...
...I reached my destination. Our favourite bakery that just happens to have a yellow sign! I knew that but only really saw it once I started looking out for yellow.
And what did I buy? A tarte aux poires. A yellow dessert to finish off my yellow walk! Yum.
I hope you had a sunny day today!
