It’s that time of year again. The snow is melting but the ground is rock hard and frozen solid, making the ice left on it lethal for walking on. The evenings are just beginning to lengthen but it’s still dark when I get home from work. Cabin fever is setting in.
So I trawled through last year’s photos to cheer myself up and prove that we have something to look forward to.
A circus performer visits the village on market day.
Flowers in the planters hung from the bridge.
An afternoon reading on the terrace beckons.
A walk amongst a few vines behind the château at Etableau.
A walk in the park at Descartes.
Market day in Loches.
Ah, summer! Can't wait. :)ReplyDelete
We're just about going stir crazy here, this snow has got to go soon!ReplyDelete
Today, when it's bitterly cold, it's hard to imagine summer, but the photographs helped.
Walt - too right.ReplyDelete
SP - close your eyes and just imagine the warmth of the sun.....lovely !!
Thanks Jean that cheered me up no end. Nigel, because of not feeling well, and the weather, has not been out the door for over 2 weeks. I have at least been shopping twice with the neighbour even if we did get stuck! DianeReplyDelete
The sun is out here -- finally-- and it's a warmish promise of Spring. Thank you for the injection of summer magic!ReplyDelete
Diane - getting stuck must have been awful. I dread that.ReplyDelete
Broad - I'm glad the sun is out for you - only two weeks of February left and then spring will be on its way.
Still grey here, but at least milder now and the ice and snow have gone! Lovely photos with their promise of summer - looking back and looking forward are fun, aren't they?ReplyDelete
Perpetua - we are at a height where we get the snow first and it lingers the longest, but hopefully the thaw will continue. Sunny photos are what keep me sane at this point in the year.ReplyDelete
simply heavenly! I've been on holiday for ten days and on only two of those have a I felt like going out. Roll on the Spring and Summer. Pictures are lovely. I particularly like the one of the view looking out on the terrace where you planned to do a spot of reading in the shade.ReplyDelete
Delightful summer pictures.ReplyDelete
But where are you more likely to get cabin fever: Derbyshire or France?
Phil - it's a favourite spot.ReplyDelete
Rob-bear - here in Derbyshire, not in France, because we are cooped up in the dark in the evenings I think.
Lovely collection of summer photos, which made me feel quite warmed up inside. Not long to go now, though. Could feel spring beckoning today as the temperatures lifted off from zero.ReplyDelete
