Paris in the Fall ...

These delectable cheeses featured in a picnic lunch last Fall, while traveling through the South of France: 
purchased at a market in the delightful town of Uzès, in this instance.

But the fact is, I'm mired in the technical so-called 'back-end' of the blog today.

While I would love to do nothing more than reflect on the magnificent sights, sounds and flavors experienced in Paris & Provence last September ... Case in point, this terrific potager in the charming wine village of Tavel,

I'm engaged instead in a frustrating battle with an advertisement that I have been unable to remove from my posts here.

I would much prefer to recall the jaw-dropping beauty of Gordes

and the wonderful Sunday in Paris, when I strolled along the elevated gardens of the 'Promenade Plantee' - where a staircase right outside the door of my Air B&B allowed access.

C'est la vie!

Echium Blooms .. San Francisco Marina

All along San Francisco's Marina Green walkway 
the Echiums are attracting bees & hummingbirds to their lavish spikes!

The bluest blue, purple and even pink specimens 
are on display. 
Simply gorgeous, wouldn't you say!

Magnolias .. Spring in the Bay Area

Magnolia sighting while strolling a lovely side street north of the Golden Gate Bridge:                                                                                 
A sure sign of Springtime
in the San Francisco Bay Area!
