Swimming pools...La piscine

Romy Schneider and Alain Delon in the french movie La Piscine

I live for the warm days and nights of summer. I live by the pool. By the pool, I sleep, dream, read, entertain, be with friends, my family, and swim...mornings and nights...I swim. It is my therapy, my relaxation, my time out, my reward for all my hard work in the garden.

So many  styles, shapes, sizes of swimming pools can provide endless pleasure.
Mine is my retreat, hidden from the house, surrounded by stone walls and my favorite scents of Rosemary, lavender and roses. Scents of my childhood summers, on the hills of Eze village above the Mediterranean.

My summer pleasures

Enjoy a great swim!

  6. I love any one of these pools but the one which is "framed" by the Trulis would be my preferred one, but it is linked to the place. Enjoy your summer

  7. Oh Francine, je fais des rêves de l'eau presque chaque soir. L'eau c'est si paisible! Tes photos sont vraiment geniales!

    Merci bien d'être venue me laisser un commentaire; j'adore écrire d'un façon quasi-poètique.

    BISOUS! Anita
