After the show we drove to Paris through the Loire Valley. I could not have thought of a better time to have done this. Being spring every thing was in full bloom and the color of the landscape was a feast for the eyes.
The flowers were in full bloom as well as and the flower markets in Paris. I love to garden and it gave me itchy fingers to get into my dirt at home to start planing for my own flower beds. It was a long winter here at home so I am looking forward to spring!
The food was fabulous in France especially all the pastries. One afternoon we all indulged in this wonderful rhubarb tart. I need to find this recipe as I absolutely love rhubarb and this was a little different with a custard filling.
As we were only in Paris for a couple of days we had to decide how to spend our time wisely. The bus tour around the city was a must especially as Cathy and Kelly had never been and it gave them an overview of the city. The one museum we decided to visit wad the Primitive Museum. It was just below the Eiffel Tower where we also had lunch.
We really had a wonderful time together. It was great to spend time with Kelly, Wendy, my Dad and Cathy. It was also wonderful to have them at the show in Nantes and for them to be a part of the launch of my new book. I thank them all for all they have done to make it possible.
