Good morning lovely people! Let's join the T-Party hosted by Elizabeth and Bluebeard. Link up with a blog with a beverage in it. My beverage this morning will be shown a bit further down.
You might have seen it on the news but Spain has had some atrocious weather lately. Thunderstorms and much rain. We welcome the rain as it hasn't rained for many months, but these were torrential rains and they did a lot of damage. Many places on the east and south coast are flooded. We are higher up but still, walking down the lane from our house we saw this:It's not a proper house. It's more like a shed. This elderly chappie kept his chickens and tools there.
The photos were taken by our neighbour Martin Rawlings.
Our house is fine. (apart from a few damp patches on the ceiling. Hubby is investigating.)
My postcard today is one from the USA. It is a 1976 photo by photographer Martine Franck entitled Le Brusc, France. To mark the fortieth anniversary of paid vacations in France, Martine Franck was commissioned in 1976 to do a survey of the French 'en vacances'. The Pool,in the town of Le Brusc. Provence, is designed by Alain Capeilleres.Martine Franck was a British-Belgian documentary and portrait photographer. She was a member of Magnum Photos for over 32 years.
I managed to find some images of that particular pool (It still exists).
The pool was designed by for his summer home hidden in the hills of
The stamps are really stunning too.
The person that sent me the card, lives in central Alabama, and he managed to add a stamp of Alabama. The American Toleware coffeepot is my qualifier for the T-Party.
We are still on our Daniel Fast, and are eating vegan without refined sugar, coffee, alcohol, and without yeast. I have had to be a bit imaginative with my meals, but thanks to the internet I have cooked some really great meals, which will definitely stay in my repertoire even after the fast.
Here is a photo of a cauliflower steak that I made the other night, served with some leftover stew from a couple of nights before. It was very nice.
Happy T-Day to all,
