Photo du Jour - A Warm Welcome Home

The plane touched down in Toulouse early Sunday evening. Barely two hours of sleep during my twenty hour journey home meant that I was slightly delirious and definitely crabby.

Then I stepped outside.

The air was soft and warm and the overcast skies were splashed with pink from the setting sun.
Such a welcome change from the freezing temperatures and dark, threatening skies I'd left behind in Spokane.

Monday morning the clouds broke up and the brilliant blue skies of the Minervois welcomed me home. Pin It

Welcome back! It's such a boost to the spirit when the almond blossom comes out after a long winter, reminding you that spring is (nearly!) here.

Jealous! Jealous!! Spring is also in the air here, but I bet nowhere as lovely as in France! Great that you're back- I'm looking forward to living vicariously through your posts again.;)

So good to be back. We're waiting anxiously for spring. Looks like today is going to be warm and gorgeous!

The blue skies were a sight for sore eyes, I tell you!

Merci! It was exactly how I felt when I woke up that morning. :)

Thanks! Glad to finally be home.

It seems like it has been a long winter so the warmer weather is fabulous.
This part of France is so beautiful in the spring!
