Having seen first hand the hustle and bustle of Paris, I can say that this looks and feel refreshing. Beautiful!
Thank you Dotti! Hope you enjoyed every bit of your visit to Paris :)
Your photos always have such a sweet serenity and sense of calm, Catherine. I can't figure out if it's you or the French landscape! My own places of peace are on forest paths or mountain trails, but I can find simplicity and calm almost anywhere I happen to be.
Thank you dear Barb. I feel that same serenity in your photos... your landscape is so tranquil and inspiring.
If I'm stressed the place I head for is Greenwich Park just down the road from me in London and I head for the quieter, less touristy bits - it's amazing what a green space can do for you, even in the midst of London's hubbub
"it's amazing what a green space can do for you" - yes :)
just too beautiful! have a lovely week!
Yes, having a simpler life was one of the reasons why we moved to Istria and there are no regrets.
Yes! This is one of the reasons, we are moving to a small beach town and shedding our belongings to live in a tiny cottage and enjoy Mother Earth's beauties rather than objects & things. Thank you for the lovely reminder, Catherine!
Ohh that sounds just divine Jamie... I can't wait to see the photos of your new surroundings. Good luck with your move! p.s. Having had to purge most of our belongings for our move overseas felt so freeing :)
I really enjoyed this group of photos. Nothing is prettier than pink hydrangea bushes and I love the perspective of the church doors under a canopy of trees.
Thank you so much Brooke!
Gorgeous photos!Thanks for linking up at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/07/variations.html
oooo i love these beautiful images.
Oh yes - every time when we go to our house in France! I pack too much and after a day I know that I will wear the same jeans and shirt for the whole time. I love the exchange with neighbours who bring vegetables and eggs and wine and after a week I feel at peace .Life in the countryside is imple and lovely.
There is nothing quite like the French countryside, it has a wonderful rustic charm that is very uniqueMollyxxx
Beautiful post! Love those pink flowers! France is amazing indeed!Found your blog through the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop.Greetings from Sweden!
Oh, so simple and so stunning!
Lovely photos...I especially like the one of the hydrangeas. The color is just beautiful. Have a grand day!
Be still my heart. Gorgeous photos of life well lived.Janet
Oh my goodness....simply beautiful.
Your images make me long for that, for sure. I know what you mean. There have been places I have visited where I thought that I could totally live because of the lifestyle. So much rushing in my real life.
ah for a simpler life! I understand completely. Going to the country always makes me feel this way. I don't have to go far. Only 20kms away we come to where the farms start. Oh to have a country house and bush paths to walk along. Have a lovely weekend and enjoy your time in the country. The hydrangeas are beautiful.
Thank you all so much for your sweet comments :) xo
Beautiful images! Makes me want to hope on a plane and go to France!
This photo series does evoke a simplier lifestyle, Catherine, mainly because they are removed from ths chaos of city life. My Favorite places are travel along back roadways, which can be found if one is adventurous enough to seek them out.
