An early morning drive.

Today, the temperature is going up, but it will reach us in the north on Friday 35 C and then it will continue to increase!
I am glad we had installed an air conditioner last year.
I went out early this morning to get Father’s Day present, in the same shop a month ago I saw these plates that inspired me for outdoor  summer meals.
In another shop I found light blue glasses to match the blue of the big plate. I did not find the round place mats  I am looking for, I would like round raffia ones.


This morning i drove through countryside and saw the beautiful flax fields, the flowers are of a pale blue , between pale blue and pale purple.
The tiny flowers only bloom a few days , they open in the morning and close at night it is so beautiful and ephemeral!
We grow a lot of flax in our region most of French one.
I took my pastel box out to do some drawing while it is so hot!

    Those plates are lovely.
