Back to France

Usual Pyrenean spring weather with April showers and sunny spells. No worries as it's always lovely to experience the incandescent green when all the beech leaves burst open! The fields are starting to fill with the lime green of starwort and the usual succession of wild flowers. There were chevreuil playing in the meadow and the garden this morning, practising for the rut and trying to remove the velvet from their antlers.

 Early purple orchids


Lots of architectural work to do this trip, but still time in the evenings to hunt for the last of the morels (if there are any) and a bit of DIY.

And finally, the bigger they are the harder they fall...this tiny (bodied) spider clearly got the better of the big hairy beast it's currently eating!
