blossom dearies, everywhere!

28 Feb

Brrr it’s still chilly, but the countryside is beautiful with all this blossom!   The Minervois is dotted with these beautiful trees and in the sun-filled afternoons, their relief amongst the landscape provides for the most magnificent views.

Putting your nose right into the flower, the smell is of intense honey.  Benjamin thinks they smell of beeswax.  He’s right.  If I close my eyes and sniff, I’m propelled straight into an old shop full of antiques!

It’s all too tempting…  I just had to pick some for home!

    Salut Kate,
    j’attire ton attention sur le rendu “page speed” de ton site,à savoir 67% = faible. Cause sans doute trop grande taille de tes clichés max resolution (?!)

    exemple: mon site est à 78%
    celui de Benjamin à 100%
