As we are in Spring Now Nice walk today to the Megaliths at St Just (35).
First time I went from Royan to the UK, 71, was at this time, end of Feb, the weather was surprisingly good, if a bit chilly
As you can see the sailing schools were out in force.
Lovely day Simon
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful - not very warm, but hardly any wind (unusual for there) and got a good vitamin D fix and tan!!
Been around there a couple of times with boat Simon
In fact, it was while sitting on cafe terrace, in Collioure, in January, I thought, I want to live in France one day
Lovely place Bill (out of season!) -completely understand that feeling
I had met a French couple from Toulouse in Majorca, we went on with the boats, to Corsica and Sardinia in company they invited me to their place, He worked for Airbus, She was an AIDS researcher, they picked me up near Beziers on the Midi, had a great time, visit to Airbus, Albi, Pau, Dune de Pilar, Pyrénées, wonderful couple, (all ‘out of season’ Simon). Then continued through the Midi, stopping at Toulouse to stay with them again and on to Scotland and Home after a great cruise in the Med via Gib outward bound!
I have wasted hours trying to get a good photograph of them but have never succeeded. A couple of weeks ago I saw a video that someone had taken of a hummingbird hawk moth and thought, why didn’t I think of that?
Blimey He’s early Ann, we get loads of them on the lavender, here in SE 56, but a few months on yet
In the summertime my garden is full of these and the Broad bordered bee hawkmoth, all after my Buddleias
Love the birds and butterflies we are lucky to get here. I remember one evening a visit from a Giant Peacock Moth, now that was spectacular !
Very early Bill, in fact I saw one a couple of weeks ago flitting round my crocus but by the time I found my camera he had moved on !
I’m green with envy … what can I boast of… greenfly on the middle landing and snails trying to get inside the front door…
Would you like some recipes for the snails Stella ?
I would, love eating them, not sure about the prep’ though
