I Know it isn't Spring in the Aude Yet But …

… it feels like spring.

On Sunday I saw an almond tree in bloom near Servies-en-Val and saw a couple more today on the way to Carcassonne.  It’s very early for them to be blooming, usually it’s mid-February before they start. 

The past 10 days have been glorious.  I’ve been having lunch outside as much as possible.  And I’ve been pruning and trimming and raking, generally spring-cleaning the garden – which also seems to think it’s spring!


The violets are blooming already.


and the miniature daffodils won’t be long.

I know it isn’t spring yet but I plan on enjoying every minute of this weather!
