It has to be said that Uzes is one of my favorite towns in the South of much so that I have been there 3 times. We first stayed there on the very first trip I ever had to France, way back in 2004, then in 2006 we stayed for another week...(you can see our little apartment in the 2nd & 3rd photo, the two windows with the cutest little balcony was our living room and bedroom). Our third visit was just last year when we were returning to Paris after our stay in Italy....we only stayed for the one night.....but it was still such a treat to be there.

The reason for this post (if there has to be one.....) I was looking for the photos of the peonies....this photo was taken in Uzes on Mother's Day 2006.

"Happy Mother's Day"

Peonies are my favourite of all flowers. They don't grow in southern California and I miss them. Thank you for sending the perfect Mother's Day flowers. Happy Mother's Day to you too.

I do adore peonies!

That looks like a wonderful French town. I would love to see more pictures of it to get a better feel of it.

Happy Mothers Day!

I agree with you, Uzès is a gorgeous and wonderful town. Many years ago I went there with my parents, brother and sister, I immediately liked it and I keep sweet memories of our visit.

The peonies are just gorgeous! We had an all too brief stay in Paris last year ...after a multi-decade absence. Loved the architecture and the flowers and the windows. Went mad with photos in Aix en Provence. Thanks for rekindling the memories

I love peonies. They are my favorite flower! I'm in the midst of posting a series of peony photos I recently took at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
