In my village.....

After a few days of dull cloudy weather, we are now in full Indian summer and there's nothing I like more on sundays late mornings than my little walk to the bakery. Yesterday, I took my camera to get a few pics of my favorite roof terrace in the village. When you walk, looking up, this is what you see: a pretty order of plants and flowers punctuating an immaculate white wall
Fragrant jasmine makes the walk more pleasantThe sight of this lemon tree always cheers me up
It grows behind the wall of an abandoned house. I always wonder what it will become in the future
This is one of my favorite houses in the village, mainly because of the pale blue color. The first floor was for rent at one time and I thought of opening my work studio there but...this house has a number 13 and superstition made me change my mind....
This is my second favorite house in the village. It is a mystery for me because, nobody lives in it or seems to ever visit and yet it is not completely abandoned...And its number is 5....a lucky number!

que lindo, Lala!
tive uma professora de cabala e com ela aprendi o poder e simbolo contido nos números.sobre a casa de n° 13 ela diria para acrescentar, com fita crepe, um número que somado desse um significado positivo.se você gosta do 5, acrescenta o 1 depois do 13.
mas com essa mente que você tem, qualquer lugar que você escolher se tornará iluminado.
bisous

Superstition, I usually jump right into things that are deemed superstitious just to debunk it. I love the number 13 for instance...and black cats and ladders...Your walk to the bakery is so fresh and bright and clear, very beautiful!Glad you are feeling better! LOVExxxooo

It would be so nice to smell fragrant jasmine on a morning walk and to see the pretty lemon tree. How idyllic :-)

I took a deep breath and there was scent of jasmin and lemon in the air, thank you! :-)

I love doors set in walls - what secrets lie beyond, I wonder? And since I have discovered preserved lemons, I SO want a lemon tree. Unfortunately they do not do well so close by the sea, I hear. Sadly I will have to buy my lemons at the shop ...

beautiful places these are

I, too, like the color that blue house. Might be able to get over the #13 to live there. Lemon trees. That would be most fun, to walk out and pick a lemon off a tree. Don't know why, other than it seems to mean you are in an exotic environment. More exciting than peaches.

Oh, I did enjoy this little stroll with you Lala! Sorry I haven't been around much lately as my brother and his wife have been visiting so I've been really busy! Glad you like your little butterfly! Off now to catch up with the rest of your posts.x

Mélanie said...

Christina said...

One day Lala, I will walk there with you...One day.
