July in the South of France, Heavenly.
I can't get enough of the fields of sunflowers. I'm crazy for them. I take the long route home in the convertible so I can drive slowly with them towering over me on either side. I arrive anywhere an hour late. 'Sorry' I mumble, 'I've been photographing the sunflowers'. I stand right up close to them and marvel at the intricate patterns, soak up their vibrant colours and breathe in the scent. I watch the bee's busy hovering from one enormous face to another. I waste my time delightfully.
Meanwhile whilst I languidly live my life minding my own business my humble blogspot brings me attention from all manner of people. A request to feature my house on a sales site (refused), an invitation for drinks at a gorgeous house in the pretty village of Lagrasse (accepted), a letter from someone restoring a National Trust Property (answered),a plea to sell an original Medieval House in Mirepoix (work in progress), oh and quite a few people wishing to view Le Chateau with an interest to purchasing my beautiful home ( ********** )
I've noticed that people have a habit of signing off after writing with the letters LOL. At first I thought it meant lots of love but then found out it could mean laughing out loud.
I just want to say here and now though that when the time arrives and yours truly signs off with LOL it won't mean any of the above. As far as I'm concerned the only LOL that I'm remotely interested in is
LADY OF LEISURE.
