here you'll pay a fortune buying this weeds/flowers, but there they grow just everywhere

my first time to see ricefields here in EU :)




these flowers/weeds are all over Provence, they grow mostly near the swamps

Bonjour! everyone :) how's my fellow bloggers? i terribly miss blogging and of course my wonderful friends, my tss buddies :) I would like to thank my dear friends here in Salitype Society, guys, thank you so much for your Bon Voyage and prayers, i miss you all. I am so blessed to have you all as my friends...

To our dear fellow bloggers and followers, thank you so much for always being there for us, God Bless you all... please continue to support our group, so we would be able to make our Micah's dreams to come true...

Camargue - Les Stes - Maries- de la -Mer- is a paradise for wild white horses, buffalos, pink flamingos and other kinds of birds, also called " the land of Flamingos ".Camargue with it's colourful, beautiful flat landscapes had been the habitat for about 500 species of birds especially the pink flamingos. Camargue enclosed by the river Rhone, it is within the 850 - sq- km- Naturel Regional de Camargue. It became officially a Nature Park in 1970 to preserved it's fragile ecosystems while sustaining local agriculture.


Up to 20,000 of those pink flamingos stay in the nature park of Camargue to winter and build their nests in Spring. That's why they always come back there. They fly non - stop from Northern Africa and Spain lay at least one fragile egg.

The ricefields was also a big surprise at least for me, the northern part of Camargue is used for agricultural, like planting rice and other plants, but mostly rice. The southern part is preserved as nature park for the animals.

I can't explain how it feels seeing these beautiful creatures enjoying their freedom, running around in this nature park :) Our trip to Camargue is really unforgetable, simply a "wanderful" experience ;)
