Sunshine at last

After weeks of drizzle and cold weather we have finally had our first real day of spring. It was beautiful. On our afternoon walk to explore the surrounding area we were bathed in sunshine. A deer was spotted in the olive grove but I was too late in getting the camera ready.

I’m hoping this is a sign that the days will start to improve.

The birds are out and about….

The olive groves are being pruned and mulched for the coming season…

  1. Mel, Kathy & Jenny have been excited to see your photos and share the fun.
    Plenty of laughs still happening on the home front, Mel still creating mischief keeping us older ones young.
    We are wondering whats the best local fare on the menu and are you playing bowls? 32degrees today, no snow.
    Jenny and girls

    • Jenny, I think if we got the team together we would win the local corporate “boules”. I am looking for a golf course but haven’t seen one yet!!!

  3. So enjoying looking at your photos and watching your journey. Cannot comment on the footy (like some others) as I know nothing!!! prefer to do my embroidery actually! Drive safely – stay right, stay right stay right! Julie T XO

    • Julie you are so right…the only conversation in the car at the moment is….slow down….and stay right…..ahhhh.

  4. Nice Pics. I’ve been down in the shed looking for my old footy boots, expecting a call from Whoosh any day now, I reckon I could just about run (brisk walk)from the boundary line to the centre. Cheers

  9. So pleased you are safely home and Spring has finally sprung. Everything looks better in the sunshine! Your photos are lovely – must have something to do with the talented photographer, as well as the snazzy camera – not to mention the beautiful Provencal light . . . .

    • It may only be short lived as the next couple of days are back to winter. But the forecast for later in the week is good. The flowers and plants on the terrace are finally starting to bloom and spring into life.

  10. Thank you for sharing your magical holiday, so enjoying the journey! Fiona x
