Nostalgia

Poppies

Nostalgia is a funny thing.

Over the weekend I was looking over my Flickr stream and came across all these lovely photos of springtime in the Languedoc.
Wow!
I had forgotten how beautiful it is this time of year down there, with the coquelicots and wisteria in bloom and the vines sprouting bright green leaves.

So if you don't mind, I'm going to share some of my nostalgia with you.

Asparagus and New Garlic

I can't believe how inexpensive this asparagus is!

Stunning photos! There's nothing quite like French landscapes in springtime! It's my favourite time of the year :)

Pretty, pretty! I've noticed the wisteria are all abloom here in the Minervois, as are the lilacs and irises. And yesterday I saw my first poppies, two weeks earlier than last year. It has been very mild. A year without winter. (I shouldn't speak too soon; a couple of years ago we were in the pool in March and then got snow--for a few hours anyway--on May 5).

Sigh...would love to be there! Where is the picture of the balcony taken? Would love to sit back with a glass of wine.

I agree! All the flowers and the bright green leaves. Happy spring!

We're still quite cold up here in Paris. I've seen photos of the poppies blooming everywhere in the south...love this time of year!
