Today’s picture was taken in the Gorges d’Orbieu. One of the many spectacular canyons in our part of France, the Languedoc.
This year the poppies are later than last year according to me and less in numbers. I have not yet found the rhythm of appearance of all these flowers and blooming shrubs but it could be that one year they are more abundant than the next. I noticed that some fruits are later as well although the winter has not been as harsh as the previous one. There is, to me at least, a lot to learn about these natural cycles of fruits and flowers and trees.
The one thing that is obvious is the beauty of it. And that part is there all the time and for free.
While traveling through this great region in France you feel so connected to the land and the nature and the make up of it.
Today, after the rains, it is so lush and incredible green with an incredible blue sky over it. Very intense.
Come and have this experience as well and join us on one of our tours.
