We’ve had some rain and thunderstorms here! Storms are always such a treat for me since we never have them back at home. I brought out tea and packaged cookies for the occasion and then my co-farmer and I made flower arrangements from the garden.
My arrangement had garden roses, oregano, verbena, crocosmia, and lysimachia.
This single petaled China rose, Mutabilis, is such a dream. Changing color from hot pink to orange to pale pink, it’s incredibly fragrant and blooms all summer long.
The sun came out once we were done arranging! I absolutely love how the weather changes here constantly and that sun regularly alternates with rain. Rain makes me feel at home.

I hope you have a lovely weekend! My days here in France are coming to an end soon and I’ll be heading to a new farm in the near future. So I am working on travel plans and catching up on work this weekend. I’ve been loving making meals from the garden, tomato salads, cucumber salads, roasted veggies, and my favorite: a chocolate beet cake! What are you up to this weekend?
P.S. Big thank you to Design Sponge for featuring me on their Day in the Life series!
Thank you to our beautiful Frolic! sponsors this month!

One thing I love about being a blogger is it seems there are friends to meet up with wherever you are in the world! I was so pleased to find out that Flora Douville, an artist I’ve long admired and blogged about multiple times, is living not too far from where I am staying here in Brittany! Last week we had the chance to meet and it was ever so lovely. I absolutely adore Flora’s light, airy paintings featuring interesting brushstrokes and playful shapes. Flora has just reopened her shop and is offering free shipping to Frolic! readers. Use the code “FROLIC14″ at checkout. Enjoy! xo
