Happy Weekend

The photo below was taken twenty years ago in France. I had to scan the old snapshot, to get a digital image. Last summer I happened to drive by that same little country church, still sitting alone in the same untouched field, but of course the poppies were not in bloom then. 
I like to imagine that they are in bloom again now or that they will be very soon.

The rest of these photos I took last summer. I somehow thought, that they might speak to the celebrations of this weekend.

I hope, what ever you do, that it will be a happy one.

Happy springtime happy Easter!!


  1. And to you, always love to look at France through your eyes, x

  2. Joyeuses Pâques à toi aussi !
    You will return in France next summer?

  3. J’aime la façon dont tu as choisi tes sujets pour nous parler du printemps. La simplicité m^me des scènes donne une belle humanité à cette série de photos, qui pour moi, me parle et me touche beaucoup.



  4. Very Easter-y pictures from France. Always happy to see photos from France. The poppies are gorgeous. I was just thinking about which seasons I have visited France. I've never been in January! Happy Easter or happy spring, whichever you celebrate.

  5. Mmm, I love the eggs and the rooster. Happy Easter to you!

  10. Lovely photographs Sally
    The poppies were out in Malta so you are probably right about them splashing red on the countryside of France to.
    Hope you are having a lovely Easter.
