Inspired by materfamilias' lovely post about her family history, I dug out this picture of grand-mere Lucille et moi. I'm not sure what we are looking at, but I know my love of gardens comes from her.
Materfamilias also tagged me for a meme this week, which I'm working on, vraiment! (Our sudden decision to go to Paris in October and the resulting urgency about finding accommodations have sucked up almost all of my online time and mental energy this week.)
And...I'm also working up some thoughts about the concept of "Home," inspired by the wonderful series of guest posts at La Belette Rouge on this topic. If you haven't read these yet, go read now. They are touching and funny and insightful and thought-provoking.
Is anyone besides une femme finding retailers' fall collections so far to be a bit....underwhelming?
