Un jour qui ne ressemblait pas...

...aux précédents. In other words, what a difference a day can make! It seems like forever since we've had a warm, sunny morning. April is not being cruel right now.

Look at that sunrise! You'd think we were in the Sahara or somewhere else exotic. But no, it's just Saint-Aignan in springtime.

Tasha the Sheltie was pretty excited. Well, she's always excited when it's time for a walk, but yesterday was definitely different. There was a spring in her step.

There was such good early morning light that I was able to take photos like this. The gloom is gone. Good riddance. The temperature today is supposed to be in the high 70s in ºF. That's 25ºC.

Next week will be the first anniversary of Tasha's arrival in Saint-Aignan. She was born in Chinon and lived there for two months before we brought her home. She often needs bathing and grooming after the morning walk, as you might notice.

It occurs to me that next week will also mark the 15th anniversary of our becoming owners of our house here. Time is just flying by. We've been enjoying this tree's spring bloom for all these years already.


  1. Beautiful. Is the tree one of your cherries or a plum? Love being able to enlarge the photos of your flowers!

  2. Wow, fifteen years already of knowing that you would be living in France- life is flying by. Your photos today are beautiful. Our Spring is full of every kind of weather so far. Enjoy your sunshine.

  3. Un ours blanc suivait un ours noir...

  4. Pretty flowers, pretty pup!


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
