This is my work space. The first day we were in the chateau and the rest of the time we were in the Medici Laboratories part of the university.
After the wine education, I drove East to Forcalquier, the town I lived in from birth till 7 years old, and visited every year for many years after. It's in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and wow was it gorgeous. It had been years since I had been in that region in the Springtime. I am used to everything being all dried out and hot and there it was all verdant and the poppies were out in full bloom! Seen below are Les Mourres - funny, geological remains of rock composites. This used to be all underwater and you almost feel like a fish swimming between the rocks.
And here is Forcalquier, perched on a hill with its citadelle on top. Please visit my photo album to see all the photos of my trip and especially the poppies!!
