Walls and Windows


In the Catalan region of southern France, one can still see the old round ovens jutting out of the side of a house. Some are still in use I have been told. People take great care to paint their houses in a variety of colours that are complimented by the addition of baskets of flowers. This is so appealing, comforting and pleasurable to witness. As well, all over the South of France, they have a special way of beautifying little windows with ironwork, plants, lace curtains or even a big blue-green bottle and a scythe!
