  1. Gosh, we dream of remarkably similar things! 🙂 I purchased some Maggie Beer ‘Fig Vino Cotto’ just this morning with a thought of making some (hopefully) exquisite tasting biscuits.
    What a gorgeous Provençal house… just beautiful! Margot

    1. Hi Margot – isn’t Maggie Beer just the best? And don’t you dream of having a holiday house in Southern France somewhere….oh we can dream! Thanks so much for visiting.
      PS. Loved your photo of the cumquat – perfection!

      1. She really is a beautiful person – talented, humble and seems such a gentle, happy soul. The Barossa (and her farm) is very much on my wish list too! My biscuits with the Fig Vino Cotto were a little overpowered in flavour by the chopped walnuts I added, so it’s unfortunately still a work in progress…
        Absolutely! to the house in Southern France – late afternoon drinks on the terrace, a glass of white (or rosé…not too fussy…) in one hand, a gougère in the other, the sound of pétanque and cicadas in the air and a slight hint of lavender and wild herbs, sweeping views of the olive grove and vineyard and a house just like the one above, though with rustic, painted wooden shutters to protect from the Mistral and the intense Provençal heat.
        So easy to get carried away with thoughts of France… Thanks also for the lovely comment about my photo!

  2. Like the cobbles and the garden – it almost looks like the garden has been clipped with nail clippers – I have truly been put to shame, or I like the rambling look (weeds thrown in for free). MM 🌿
