For this month's angel, Rosemary writes:
During a recent visit to the Drome Provençale region, I was thrilled to come across a duo of angels decorating a white enameled mailbox on the Grande Rue of Mirmande. Mirmande is a lovely hilltop village, considered one of the most beautiful in France. In spite of its size – current population 550 – over the centuries Mirmande has produced some extraordinary personalities. This house was once home to Jules Goux, automobile racer and winner of the Indianapolis 500 in 1913. Today the 16th century stone building is a "gite de France," a rural holiday rental. The lively angels add a festive touch to the charming old-fashioned mailbox.
