There’s a Sad Tale About the Judas Tree Blooms

Over the years we have visited Provence just about every month, but until we bought the house we hadn’t visited in April, which to be honest looking back on it now, was rather an oversight.

In April, the countryside simply explodes with colour as the wildflowers start to bloom, bringing the landscape back to life after the cold winter months. They seem to explode overnight along with the Cherry blossom, which turns the bare orchards into snow drifts of petals…

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
