Lavender fields in Provence France

I have written of the remarkable expanse of lavender around the Abbey at Senanque just north of Gordes in the chapter ‘Our week in Provence’ in my book on Amazon – THYME for PROVENCE but it is worth briefly pointing out some other areas that should be on your ‘must see’ list if you are a lover of this beautiful fragrant plant. I appreciate that there are many people for whom a visit to Provence must be made in the lavender season as it is crucial to their experience of the region. My wife Niamh is one of those people.

French Wine, Tommy Simpson and the Tour de France

I had a bit of a deja vu moment recently (It is 45 years since I saw Crosby Stills Nash and Young at Wembley Stadium but the album of that name has nothing to do with this post) when I received an Instagram post from a wine domain I follow.
