Trees have been planted perfectly lined up along roads. In some wooded areas they are planted in a triangular pattern – but again, all in line...like Napoleon’s soldiers (!)
Trees are severely pruned or trimmed down to where they look like the arthritic hands of an old woman. This is mainly done in villages, along streets and in public areas. However, you see this done on private property as well. This practice is called Pollarding.
This is a grocery store in France that has a Red, White and Blue logo. For years, I’ve looked at this logo as two arrows pointing in opposite directions. My sister always thought it was a fleur-de-lis on its side.
This trip, as we were driving through village after village, I took a good look at this logo many times and finally figured out what it is…at least it’s what I think it is. Can you guess?
It’s a “C”…for Carrefour! Many in my husbands family also didn't realize what it was. There were one or two that were like "it's a C", but others were just as surprised at our discovery as we were.
