We interrupt our regularly scheduled posts from the idyllic French Riviera to bring you this important news flash. It is F’ing winter in our neck of the woods. It is supposed to be cold and snowy, right?
We had our cold spell in January and it passed in 6 days. We got our normal allotment of snow over the first couple of months, but, today, a further 15 cm (6 inches) of snow was bequeathed to us over a period of about 12 hours (most of it in the first 6 hours). My beloved and I shoveled walks and driveways at 8 AM, again at 11 AM and yet again at 7:00 PM.
I know, I know, there will be snow, in this area, at this time of year, but not this much snow! My neighbours definitely know the perfect time to leave for their month in Hawaii.
Sighhhh. But, as my Patty always says, “Its so beeyouteafulllll? She is right and it was, in fact beautiful for about 20 minutes, at lunch time. That is when the snow stopped (briefly) and the sun came out. I sprang into action to capture some photos before wind and sun pushed all the prettiness onto the ground and walks and driveways.
So, enjoy. We will be back in the South of France on Thursday. Wish I was there, friggin’ now.

Pining for spring, yet?

It is so beautiful, but so is the bright green of spring.
