My afternoon in Castelnaudray, Aude, Languedoc Rousillion, France

I decided to take an hours drive from home to visit the town of Castelnaudray.  We visited the town many years ago whilst house-hunting in the area and we obviously didn't see this part of the town by the Canal du Midi.  I had a glorious afternoon and I hope that you enjoy the photos below.




Such a welcoming invitation.....

Sunflowers and Friends

Swathes of sunflowers, majestic mountains and the silhouhettes of green trees bordering the massive patchwork of yellow and golden wheat fields.








The view from the top of our driveway :-)

A night with friends in Lezignan-Corbieres - I love this area for its beauty, but it's quite wild.....
