A romantic after all??

I know I married a Frenchie, but that doesn’t mean that everyday is full of flowers, French champagne, French perfume, lingerie…  I won’t go any further, but to say simply that you can’t change the man!

What you see is what you get with this one (and I’m fine with that), and though dinners aren’t candlelit with violins serenading us, sometimes I do get little surprises.  Like this one yesterday…

I've received some flowers!

...roots and all

…roots and all!!

These beautiful wild leek flowers – ‘allium ampeloprasum‘ are all over the vineyards at the moment and Benji gave me quite a lovely surprise by bringing me this bunch home.

He is a romantic after all.

They just need a bit of a trim.  But we can even eat the bulbs… a man that thinks of everything.

I can’t get enough of the wildflowers at the moment.  Everyday brings a new variety or colour and it’s wonderful going out for a walk in the garrigues and a cheeky pick!
