These aren't the sad Blues...These are the refreshing,
as well as natural
...of our week's holiday in Brittany, northern France.
The blues of nature and the sea are reflected in a love of blue on land.
You can imagine I was happy!
We spent a week in a gite (holiday cottage - not pictured!) with Ben's parents.
We enjoyed the sea and the river,
prehistory and history,
cider, galettes and and crepes.
The blue hydrangeas (different soil to down here, sigh...) are used in the colourful house numbers.
The blue of the sea inspires the others...
Incidental details on the houses are usually blue.
And windows and shutters are very nearly obliged to be blue!
transport also seems to have been traditionally...
I'll leave you with some beautiful blue windows...
... and I'll tell you more tomorrow!
