Country Roads


Even though we traveled with a GPS, affectionately called Mimi Two, we still traveled many country roads in the south of France and sometimes got lost. Just a note, I am Mimi One and my husband said he had two bossy ladies on the trip telling him what to do.
The country roads were glorious with the beginning of autumn, leaves were just starting to turn golden. The roads were narrow and windy, but oh so beautiful. I just loved the pink nose of that sweet cow. Fire wood and fence posts would be neatly stacked between the trees.
It was walnut harvest time and everywhere we drove there were walnut trees and most often a few people collecting the walnuts under the trees. The orchards were so neat and tidy, I was totally impressed and loved every moment of traveling the country roads.

Double click on the collage for a closer look.

Tomorrow is a winter tea in Aspen and the beginning of the Christmas season here at Delights of the Heart. I will still be sharing travel days interspersed with the holiday season.

Beautiful trip --- and love that GPS has a name. Mimi sounds perfect for traveling France. Our GPS has a name as well. Her name is Americana. :D We are such romantics, aren't we! LOL!

Enjoy a lovely day! Love the Christmas header. 'Tis the season!

Love

Beautiful photos...and you must be having so much fun. I love to just meander around on Europe's country roads. There is no such thing as getting lost, because everywhere there is something beautiful to behold.

As it is, I have added you to my fellow promoters side bar link. Thanks you so much for signing up and coming. If you want to read a very funny time some of the guests had the night before, those who came early that is, you can read up about it at Skip's and Rebecca's blogs. Truly, you will laugh!

I think your husband is completely endearing. Imagine such patience with two bossy Mimis.
