Bastille Day Lunch at my Sister’s – Un dimanche à la campagne

(In English below)

rrtydhqd

Nous ne sommes pas vraiment à la campagne, mais ma soeur à fait planter un potager dans sa maison de ville cette année et nous profitons maintenant des légumes les plus frais. Ses petites carottes sont à mourir…qethgIMG_9946 _SnapseedIMG_9862 _Snapseed

Au menu de ce midi, quelques dorades pêchées hier au Cap Ferret et parfaitement grillées par mon beau frère, de belles huitres bien grasses et des salades composées avec les petits légumes du jardin… Un soleil pur et une petite brise… Chez ma soeur, c’est toujours la perfection dans la simplicité. Notre “French Heaven” à nous! wdfhdfqdfhgIMG_9886 _Snapseed

Joyeux 14 juillet à tous!!

My sister had her gardner plant a vegetable garden in the courtyard of her townhouse earlier this year. We had our Bastille Day lunch outside by the pool under the olive tree.ffghIMG_9963 _Snapseedcg,h

On the menu: Dorades from Cap Ferret, gorgeous oysters, salads made with organic veggies from the garden, cheese and a beautiful apricot tart from Lopez’dfhIMG_5595

Happy Bastille day everyone!

    You are my favorite photographer. I feel I must jump on a plane and get to France immediately! Or take the camera to the garden….or throw a dinner party….you are inspirational!

    Ah oui ! si toute la famille s’y met ! car j’ai bien reconnu l’homme “du feu” qui ensuite déguste ses huitres ; mais aussi la charmante jardinière qui sait faire de si bonnes sauces salade. Vous ne déparez pas dans cette belle maisonnée. Bravo et merci

    The oysters in France are the best! Delia and I ate about 20 dozen last month in the South. Happy Bastille Day.
