Spring is here! Fete du Mimosa

As the seasons change almost overnight we find ourselves hitting the beach

and picnicing in style

Everywhere around us Mimosas are flowering and there is the spectacular fete du mimosa in Roquebrun to celebrate the beginning of Spring usually on the second Sunday of February.

Most houses around us have sprigs of this beautiful flowering tree to brighten the coffee or dining table and our gite was no exception:

This years theme in Roquebrun was Le cirque which is also the theme for our village carnival this year in April
