Spring miscellany

A belated happy Easter to you all!

After last week’s text-heavy blog, we thought we would have something of a compensation with very much a photo compilation. After what was effectively three months of total drought, which regular readers will have noticed, worried us considerably, April has been extraordinarily cool and wet. We were in Toulon on Thursday with a guest and everyone was wandering around with winter jackets and rainwear.

The arrival of rain after such a long drought has, unsurprisingly, given rise to an explosion of flowers, buds and foliage. So here are some photos:

Spring foliage in the valley of the River Argens
poppies growing out of a stone wall
Our wisteria is now just past its best, but this year it has had the most flowers we’ve ever seen.
The vines are showing their leaves
swallowtail butterfly on clover
and we are seeing butterflies such as this Swallowtail attracted by all the flowers
