Spring is here…
Printemps est arrivé!
All of a sudden (tout à coup) the willows are weeping, the garlic is showing, the trees around the house are budding and the almond blossom is out.
Our resident tree frog croaks a greeting–joining the spring awakening.
A low buzzing creeps into our consciousness and sure enough there are bees above.
A frosty start this morning but now a gentle warmth pervades–and the quiet is palpable.
Beau, head cat, spent the night locked in the dependence (our mistake), but shows no resentment–and is doing what cats are expert at–lying in the springtime sun.
Il profit du soleil.
I saw three baby elephants on a patch of grass outside the Géant supermarché this afternoon.
Pas vrai–spring fever!
No, really! The circus is in town.
Even the parking fine notice that just arrived–two weeks after the offense–can’t dampen the spirits.
It is good to be alive.
