> The incomparable Cécile

Ready for dinner
The patio, and Pantouflé the dog
The lady herself
vegetables for dinner from the garden
The roses slowly unfurl
She knows every flower in her garden
One of the courtyard buildings
Grapevines over the courtyard entrance
Another of the courtyard buildings
The back of the cottage
It is the most comfortable, chaotic, beautiful place
Onions out the back...they are sooo yummy
Gates into the courtyard
Old grapevines around the courtyard entrance
A painting Cécile did of of many
Rose after rain
Cécile's writing desk
Paths littered with fruit wind back in the secret garden
Climbing for fruit
The tiny hidden room
A day later, the single rose is wilting
