We just got back from spending a few days with some friends who live on the coast..
on the way back we passed a field with sheep - and they ALL had lambs !!
the mimosa trees were in full bloom - an explosion of golden yellow fringing the borders of the route .. their perfume was exquisite !
We also noticed that the doves and pigeons were busy gathering twigs - the promis of nestlings to come !!
When we went out into the garden we were greeted by the blosoms on our almond trees !
Even up on the cliffside that looms over our garden the almond trees have somehow managed to dig in and cling there - a sort of suspended waterfall of petals !

Before going up to Paris for Christmas I put out tons of food for the birds ..
was a bit worried that being away for so long they might run out ..
they become so dependant during the winter period.
When I returned I found that nothing had been touched !!
Where were all the birds ? Didn't they like the food ?
Was something scaring them away ?
Turns out that quite simply there aren't all that many birds around the place !
Maybe it's because there are hardly any gardens where we are !
Recently though the birds have appeared ... maybe they've had a good food supply up untill now who knows - maybe they've only just found the bird table LOL
There aren't many of them but they seem to come in pairs !!
Two Robins .. the male is beautifully red !
Two Blue Tits
Two Coal Tits
Two chaffinches .. don't know what they are though
and Two Ringed Doves !!
I'm delighted !
I love seeing them every morning flittering about ... they come back in the evening too just before nightfall !
It's so wonderful to have a wee garden here in the middle of a city !
Joëlle went out early-ish this morning to do a little shopping ..
much to my surprise she came home with a beautiful bouquet of red roses !
It's valentines day tomorrow she smiled !
I was sooo surprised - my lady is a very down to earth feet deepy rooted in the ground Taurus and isn't usually so romantic !
What's more she's taking me out to diner tomorrow too !
It really is the simple things in life that matter eh !
