Today, I propose we go for a walk in Marseille. Right in the center of the town, there is a street where people try to do something special. I know they organize concerts, theathers, etc and the restaurants there are nice too. But what interests me is their plants festivals. They take place twice a year, in autumn and spring and last two days. This weekend was one of those.
The weather was ideal, warm, with a little wind. My daughter Emilie had arranged to spend the weekend at home. She is presently living in Normandy, where she misses the sun... She was more than delighted by our trip.
They have beautiful citrus trees, of all kinds:
This is used to distil lavender:
And they started the fountains just as we were leaving:
