Colorful French autumn

I love the autumn months in Languedoc. The vineyards are busy as the vignerons hand-prune the vines and prepare the plants for next year. The Indian summer is long, so the leaves only slowly turn from green to saturated reds, golds and browns. The colors of the leaves clinging to the vines depends on the type of grape, so the vista across a field is a patchwork of color. Below are a few samples of the gorgeous fall palette.


In town and at the market, too - color is everywhere ...
