That’s a cool blog. Ever since we returned from our fabulous vacation in Normandy, I can’t get enough of reading articles about it! You gave me lots to dream about for our next trip. I’m writing about our trip now on my blog.
And those Sunflowers! Gorgeous! Saw lots in the Loire Valley, too.
Bon Dimanche!

About the sunflowers dying. Is that pitiful or what?

They quickly were looking dead. I tried everything until one morning I looked out to see Squirrels attacking them. They were dead within a week…the flowers not the squirrels. ;)

They were amazing – as far as the eye could see – tall as me – blue sky above. Remember that day clearly. Just love and miss France and Luxembourg so much. Enjoy your weekend.
