We seem to be making it a habit of going to 20th anniversary events these days. Last week it was Le Marmiton’s 20th, this weekend, the 20th annual Maubec Hortifleurs – a traditional flower festival for the entire Luberon region.

Local nurseries primp and prime their plants to full flower in time for the show, the local mechanical agents showcase their products and, naturally, there is ample food, wine and beer. The Hortifleurs is the only event in Provence we have ever been to which has a beer tent!

In cases like these, the pictures tell a thousand words..
