I’ve just been away with my Mom for a few days in the Loire. We were staying on a campsite in the middle of nowhere and spent plenty of time cycling and driving through the countryside. I might end up doing a couple of blog posts from the trip because I’ve got so many photos that I’d like to share, but first up here are some from those country roads.
First up the familiar sights of French fields of vines and maize.
But by far the most intruiging sights were the fields full of dead sunflowers. We couldn’t work out why they had been left to die as we presumed the seeds could not have been collected. It was quite a sombre sight to see these flowers, that are normally so bright and cheery, looking so sad and forlorn.
