I want it to be warmer, but it's only April 1, so there's little hope. Only a fool's hope. I wish I had some elaborate prank to pull, but it's not in me. Too much work. I'm watching the grass grow, waiting for a stretch of relatively dry weather. I've got to service the mower (oil, blade) and remove mole hills from the lawn before making the first pass. Any day now.
The dried artichoke flowers are releasing their hairy seeds.
And there are little piles of things here and there that need to be cleaned up, like these dead artichokes on our pathway. I cut them down, but I didn't dispose of them yet. Baby steps.
Living outside of Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher since 2003. You'll find here pictures and descriptions of our daily life in rural France, some travels, and other stuff about me, my husband Ken, our dog Callie, and our cat Bertie.
