Changes, continued ?

Remember my TIF piece? The one about changes and caterpillar ? Well, should have been premonition... this is what was waiting for me this evening: I'm so glad you liked the pictures of the roses in Avignon.
And yes, we all had our noses into the flowers and full of pollen :-).
Are they teahybrids ? I feel a bit ashamed, I really have no clue, not even sure of what it means...
We did not have chateauneuf du pape with our lunch, just a kir as a starter. But we were right outside the palace, in the sun, enjoying that lively place like all tourists do.
Lynne, I'm happy it brought back nice memories. I love Aix, and thought I hate driving to Avignon, I love that part of the town. I can feel all those people that were living there. It is easy as many buildings from that time are still present. And during the Festival, it is fabulous.

I wish you all a great week. Mine will be short, I mean the working part of it. On Thursday I'm off to Madrid, to spend the weekend with my two daughters. The meteo forecasts are gloomy, but I'm sure we will enjoy ourselves.

This looks like a nice big caterpillar. Maybe it is a caterpillar of a butterfly.

Have a lovely time in Madrid - the weather was great these last days in Paris so I'm hoping you'll have great weather further in the south. And I love the last post with all the roses. A hybrid tea is a tea rose (first of the repeat blooming kind) that's been hybridized for increased blooms or fragrance or disease resistance or color. The kinds you photographed look like floribunda and hybrid teas.

Oh, it looks like he's after your iris! HOpe your trip to Madrid is great. I just got home from a weekend with some of my daughters, although not at such a glamorous location!

That caterpillar is psychedelic! Did you let him have his way with that Iris or did you capture him in a jar?
Have a lovely time in Madrid with your 'girls'.
