Two women and a young boy next to a balcony of roses at the Trutat chalet, Foix in the Midi-Pyrénées of France.
The autochrome was taken ca. 1903 by Eugène Trutat, via Bibliothèque de Toulouse Commons on flickr.
Look, Delia, how w’ esteem the half-blown rose
The image of thy blush and summer’s honour. . .

We’re here — not in Foix, sadly — for the summer.
I am in the Mediterranean (Majorca) for holidays and this image is so traditional and so charming!
I love the pale lavender-pink shutters.
