Birds, birds, birds. We’re always keeping an eye out for them on our forays in and around Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, binoculars at the ready. But, more often than not, those winged creatures are too far away or don’t pose long enough to get their picture taken. And that’s when I happen to notice the spaces near the spots that our feathered friends have just commandeered as a runway.
As if for the first time, I’m struck by the delightful variety of some architectural and landscaping design elements hiding in plain sight.
Knock-knock, who’s there? Who needs a harsh buzzer when you can tap-tap-tap melodiously to announce your arrival?
You’ve Got Mail! An iron box, a splintered wood container, or a slot carved in stone–these boîte aux lettres are here to deliver news to you.
Fence Me In. Colorful and creative, these enticing enclosures are everywhere. Just look!
Push me Pull Me. Elaborate or plain, polished and gleaming or tarnished and dull, these door pulls will get you in.
Happy Spring to all!
Stay well and hopeful.
