The summer  harvest in Provence  has been gathered.  Along with the cereal crops, the fields of lavender and sunflowers add to the typically provencal landscape- the subject of many works of art.  Hues of gold, yellows and purple add a depth of colour to the  landscape, making the summer months a special time for visiting Provence.

From  Le Diamant Noir, Aups, the lavender plateau of Valensole is only a short drive away and well worth a visit, particularly  just before harvest.
