Less than a year after Francois's death, I couldn't venture outside my apartments without encountering her and Henri's entwined initials everywhere, sprouting on tapestries and eaves like mushrooms after a raid. God forbid Diane ever desired something of mine, for hard-pressed would I be to defend it.In my readathon mini-challenge post, I mentioned that I have in the past been compelled to spend time searching for images online relating to Russia, Scotland and Tuscany for example, but I should have mentioned France as well. I spent ages at one point looking at Carcassonne, and another place that I have enjoyed looking at online is the Loire Valley, particularly some of the absolutely gorgeous chateaus that are scattered through. This is another reason why I like watching the Tour de France as well!
One of the gorgeous chateaus that I would love to visit one day is connected with Catherine de Medici and the Diane mentioned in my teaser and that is Chenonceau! This image is from the official website for the chateau.
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!
