While I’m on talking about wildflowers, I thought I’d share these pics of the poppies (‘coquelicots’) and broom (‘genets’), in full bloom here, that never fail to delight me.
The roads and vineyards are all lined with these these gorgeous flowers and their strong red and yellow tones. And the smell of the broom is just incredible!
I hadn’t really appreciated the season of Spring until now, living here in France. The contrast of each season is quite dramatic and very different to my hometown of Adelaide. After the cold and harshness of winter (am I glad that we have central heating – something unheard of for me in Oz!) nature in Spring just bursts to life with colour and energy. Even the locals seem to get excited and step up a notch in energy.
Maybe it’s also living in the countryside that allows me to appreciate all this magic and colour.
