Spring has sprung

All over Europe it seems, people are shedding their woolly pullies and revelling in the  balmy air, as plants unfurl new leaves and flowers, and animals mate and give birth.

This was the lac de Montbel at the very end of last week.We enjoyed the views.  The cows enjoyed the views.Though this mother preferred to keep her calf safe at her side.Dozens of lizards sunbathed on the newly warmed rocks.  Here’s one.And here’s some sloe blossom.  I’ll be back in the Autumn for the mouth-puckeringly sour fruits  to make sloe gin or vodka.There’s only one problem.  The warm weather has brought out all the biting insects.  They soon found me.
