When I saw the title of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge I knew exactly what I would say if asked what is my ‘Happy Place’ and where I would go to find my ‘groove’ and inspiration .
For almost 14 years now we have lived on a hillside in south western France. The roofs still leak and parts of the boundary walls need rebuilding, the garden still lacks borders and plants, the house would be so much nicer with a decent bathroom and a heating system that worked, the kitchen is woeful, we never have enough buckets when it rains, the water pump is constantly blocked with snails and most recently a small frog, our chic is decidedly shabby and with winter just around the corner we will be putting on layers and layers of woolly sweaters and socks to keep warm. But for all that, the place has an atmosphere, a setting and a view which are beautiful beyond riches and I wouldn’t change it for the world……
Here are a few images of the view from a French Hillside in the morning sun and the evening sun in Autumn.
