Day Five was a bit overcast and rainy for most of the morning.
I loved the cooler air and even though the rain changed our plans I loved seeing France through the rain.
The afternoon sun came out and gave me the opportunity to head back out and take some photos of the countryside.
I was joined by Molly and Alexis.
We laughed so much and could have gotten into a little trouble with the older locals…but no arrest was made.
I took way too many photos of sunflowers…but you will be spared because I am currently busy getting our family packed and ready to head to my parent's farm in Illinois.
Enjoy just a GLIMPSE (believe me on this one) of the gorgeous sunflower fields I saw while in the south of France.
If you have been following my blog for awhile now…you know how much my children LOVE the farm and it truly is their favorite place on earth.
Our days will soon be filled with cornfields, tree swings, tree houses, lightning bugs, Lizzie the dog, bonfires, dirt from head to toe, old friends, tractor rides and quiet.

Great photos! Love sunflowers..but living in Kansas I guess you have to! Have a great time on the farm! xoxo
Oh, how i love me some sunflowers…buy them waaay too much—I was wondering what that awful smell was as I sat at the table blogging…could it be me? the dog? leftovers?
yes..it was a vase of sunflowers that were on their way out…I was sad to part with them–stinkiness and all.
Your pics are so lovely, Jeanne–you’ve captured it all so well. It’s a treat to see what Frenchie delight you will post next!
Those sunflowers are beautiful. My favorite flower! I love when you share about the farm…stories and pics make my heart happy. Love you, Hugs,Amy

I adore sunflowers. I bought a print from Meg awhile ago and it sits in my living room…right along with your bird photo:) Those were amazing! Have a blessed time Jeanne. Enjoy all the farmy goodness. I’m a little jealous. I haven’t been home since March. I miss it.
Breathtaking photos! I can’t imagine what it must have been like to see that in person.
Have fun over here in the Midwest! I’ll be a little happier, just knowing that you’re nearer. 🙂
