Wild Irises of Provence

Go out, find them… fields are in bloom all across Provence, especially around Trets, where the 2ème Journée de l’Iris was just held, a celebration and discovery around the production and harvesting of Provencal irises by the coopérative les Aromates de Provence (CAPOMIVAR). On the Route de Rousset and between Fuveau, Rousset and Trets, you will certainly catch a glimpse.

A feature on the iris harvests is here, but for now, be inspired and hit the roads… as Theo Van Gogh said “The Irises are a beautiful study full of air and life…” captured oh so beautifully by his famous artist brother during his stay in Saint Rémy de Provence (image shown).
