Dreaming of France -- Scenery During a Morning Run

Ooops. Sorry I'm running late. I'm on vacation in Florida and totally forgot about posting Dreaming of France today.

Thank you for joining this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.

One thing that I continue, no matter where in the world I am, is running. So here are a couple of shots that I took on my first run in France this spring. 

In Columbus where I live, the scenery doesn't change very much. It's pretty flat and I pass other runners and walkers with their dogs, but in the village Mireval, not far from Montpelier, I had a view of a ridge of mountains. Not a common sight for me. 


And the mountains got higher as I got closer. Plus look at that old stone wall. I wonder who built it and how long ago. 

In the distance was a village, and the spire of the local church stood above everything else.

And some of the houses had lovely roses in bloom. 
Thanks for joining me as I dream of France. On Thursday I have a book review going up and a chance to win a copy of That Spring in Paris by Ciji Ware. I hope you'll come back.

Lovely photos, Paulita. As for the running, I can't run for a bus let alone over hill and dale x

I'm also from the Midwest and know what you mean. I have to pinch myself every time I set out and see mountains to the north and mountains to the south. So beautiful. And the beach not far away. A little of everything.
Right now, my run is interrupted every time I see some ripe figs and/or wild blackberries along the road or path. Nothing like stuffing one's face during exercise.

Suzie, A walk is probably better for enjoying the scenery anyway.
Francetaste, Yum. What fun to forage as you run.

House Work

 We're creeping along on improving the house. Some of the work that has to be done isn't really visible, not as visible as repaintin...
