Mon village - My village

Aujourd'hui, pas de tricot, pas de crochet, pas d'idées fumeuses, je vous invite à une petite promenade dans les rues de mon village :

Il y a plein de rues couvertes, ouvrant sur des calades, c'est-à-dire des ruelles pavées de galets.

Quelques belles maisons témoignent de la richesse passée, due à la culture de la garance. Quand on a cessé de teindre les uniformes des militaires en rouge, beaucoup de familles ont fait faillite. Les toitures des maisons ont été écroulées afin de ne plus payer l'impôt. De ce fait, une couronne de maisons en ruine entoure la colline.

Quelques roses de fin d'été ... On peut voir beaucoup de très vieilles plantes, telles que les glycines, les bignionias, les rosiers, dont les troncs noueux décorent les façades et les montées d'escaliers, après s'être déployés à leur aise.

Une mode assez récente a conduit pas mal de personnes à peindre leurs portes et leur fenêtres dans des tons allant du mauve au violet, référence à la lavande locale. C'est parfois beau, comme ici, mais souvent d'un goût ... douteux. La couleur traditionnellle, ici, est le "bleu charette", ainsi nommé car il servait également à peindre les charettes en bois. Tout bonnement car il y a dans cette peinture un agent empêchant la putréfaction du bois, et qui, de façon annexe, éloigne les insectes. Le plâtre des encadrements externes des fenêtres était d'ailleurs parfois teint de la même couleur. Tout se perd, ma brave dame!

Ma grille d'égout préférée! Je n'ai pas pu résister à vous la montrer! Il en reste assez peu, car elles sont progressivement remplacées par un modèle du style "normes européennes"!

J'ai une passion pour tous ces anciens aménagements urbains, et je les photographie fréquemment, où que j'aille! J'ai ramené quelques photo de plaques et de grilles de Hambourg, par exemple!

En fait, je compte m'inspirer de tout cela pour réaliser des échantillons de matières au tricot et au crochet (oh non! j'avais dit que je n'en parlais pas!!!). Cela sera réuni dans un petit fascicule genre "streat knitting", petit clin d'oeil au "streat wear". Pour les puristes : "tricot des rues", en référence à la "façon de s'habiller dans la rue"!

This is a little walk in my village :

Many tiny streets are paved with pebbles.

Some nices houses are the whitnesses of the past centuries, when people were earning monney growing madder. When the army stopped dying the uniforms with red color, many people lost their monney, and destroyed the roof of their houses to stop paying taxes.

Actually, some people paints doors and windows with purple shades, in reference to the lavender. Sometimes it's pretty, like here, but most of the time, not really. The traditionnal outdoor painting, here, is "bleu charette" : It avoided mosquitoes, and kept the wood sane.

I'm also showing you my favorite old sewers' lid. I'm fond of that sort of things, and take pictures of them as often as I can, everywhere!
I'll make a leaflet, one day, called "streat knitting", with knitted and crocheted swatches inspired by those metalic urban objects!

So beautiful, so quaint. What a wonderful place to live and grow in Spirit. One has the feeling that time forgot this little village because the Earth Mother loved it so much she didn't want to see it change.

What a lovely place! Thanks for sharing.

Your village is just ooooh, so pretty! Like a dream, the very idea a foreigner (like me) has of villages in Provence. By the way, I have booked a flight to Nice in October again, and plan to spend five, hopefully lovely days there. My first visit was in March, and ever since then I have wanted to go back.

monik a dit…

Ton village est superbe merci!

Jigé a dit…

salut et bravo!

moi qui suis du qué. je me de demandais où est ce très beau village. quand j'ai lu "lavande", j'ai pensé: sud de la France. Puis j'ai vu ton profil: Provence. Ah j'ai compris!

c'est par hasard que je suis arrivé sur ton blog. Si tu aimes la connaissace de soi tu es bienvenue sur je mien.

Ruth a dit…
