Last year at this time we were driving around the Loire and the Luberon, and while this painting of Pontoise is not in either location it reminded me of our trip. Plus a final look at summer seemed appropriate as we speed into September.
The Hermitage at Pontoise, ca. 1867
And I had to post this picture just because it reminds me of that trip a year ago. A scene light years from the eight hours I spent this weekend pulling about a decade’s worth of ivy.
