in between

This last snowfall could keep it all hidden until mid-June, for all we know. 

The snow seems to be reigning supreme this year, punctuated by flirty peep shows from a baking hot sun.

Snowfall, sunshine. Snowfall, sunshine.
Hidden, revealed. Hidden, revealed.

Winter's game of peekaboo continues, whilst Madame Printemps is trying to nose her way through the grey skies and smile on the earth below.

Whenever we get the chance, we throw open the windows and let in the clean, fresh Spring breezes. Even better, we head out with picnic baskets and seek out the sporadic sunny patches in lush green grass for a few hours of content sunbathing.

I can't wait until the earth is warmed up enough for planting our garden, wearing long dresses and wild camping without the shivers.

Vert olive / vert pomme / vert mousse / vert amande / vert sapin / vert menthe.

On est venu en Bretagne quelques semaines pour me mettre au vert.

we went to Spain

We went to Spain. Aragon, to be precise.

Our trip was modest, but full of little joys: Picnics in canyons. Dusk strolls beneath almond trees. Waking to cuckoo song. Speaking Spanish until my head hurt. Learning to make real tortilla. Finding spring flowers. The warmth of the sun on my skin.

The same mountains, but the other side of the watershed gives a different perspective. A change of air, a change of season.

Our trip was short, but it was wondrous.When can we go back?
