Fabulous Provencal Autumn reds and golds

From the fabulous red creeper at the wine Domaine de la Fourmone in Vacqueras to the gold and yellows of the vines in the Cotes du Rhone vineyards

and the gorgeous trees against the blue blue sky on the road driving up to Mont Ventoux.

These are the colours of Autumn in Provence.

Fantastic peppery wild rocket adds a hint of bite to a simple salad, and gorgeus feathery fennel for a lovely aniseed flavour - its all just for the taking in the hedgerows of Provence.
