down beside the river

With longer days bringing more sunlight, signs of Spring are finally starting to appear. One rainy afternoon this week, we headed down to one of our favourite summer swimming spots, Pont de la Gauntau, with scissors and foraging basket. 

We got soaked to the skin rummaging around in the bushes beside the gave, searching for nettles, lungwort and wild garlic. The latter was sadly non-existent, the bulbs must have been washed further down the river during the floods last autumn. 
Still, we returned to the homestead with plenty of nettles and lungwort, that we put straight into a veggie lasagne (the latter is just like spinach, although it tickles your throat a bit more).
