Nice - Gordes - Embrun

 The view of the courtyard from my hotel window in Nice
The Riviera - summer already!
 The Nice flower market and my favourite flowers, renoncules.
A small selection of the spices offered.
Candies and little bowls, just what everyone needs.
A presence everywhere in France - young soldiers with machine guns.
The streets of vieux Nice. See those Matisse colours? He lived here for a long time.
Just to show that the Italians do not have the corner on over-decorated churches ...
On one side of the barrier, the 10% who pay for the privilege of sitting on chairs. On the other, the rest of us.
After my trip to Avignon to meet Lynn and Denis, on the way to Gordes we stopped at a market stand. Fresh garlic.
Lynn and Denis's garden in Gordes. Very old stone fence and many olive trees.
L, D and I had lunch with Bernard and Isabelle in the Alps. A spectacular wisteria.
