It's been a wonderful week of hot sunshine here in Provence and I feel very lucky to be free to enjoy it.
After the whiteness of winter in the Alps, these colours are a real joy.
Everything is bursting into life, the leaves on the trees get bigger by the hour and the flowers are all blooming. The wisteria is now in full flower and the air is scented.
The birds are all busy with nests and eggs.
It's exciting to see all the flowers and bushes that I am beginning to recognise. The flora here is a mix of alpine and mediterannean and takes is a whole new learning process for me.
