Yesterday I walked up to the top of the south facing valley side to see how spring was progressing.
The fruit trees are all in bloom, plum
cherry, and the blackthorn. The smell is delicious.
From the road that runs along the top of the ridge, you get a good view across the farmland that rolls back from the Garonne.
Going back down, I tried to get a shot of the château on our side of the valley but there wasn’t enough sun. It often looks a bit sinister. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the sun on it.
Going down into our woods. The photo has stretched out the lane and made it look flat. It’s in fact quite steep…
I’ll put a few flowers in another post.
