Feels like the start of summer here in Provence……… the light is incredible……. translucent…… and the blue sky is electrifying! The region has started to warm up. It started in early May – the chill of the early morning and evening has gone making way for a soft warm feeling. Almond trees, cherry trees and soon the lavender. The colours are vivid! The mosquitoes are back!! I’m feeling a little blue too; I can’t believe its getting closer to the time when I will return to England. But first, the summer. Aix en Provence is getting busy….. tourist buses are here and I realise that I was lucky enough to see Aix in the tranquil wintertime. What a treat that was! Not entirely sure how I feel…….. I’m excited to start my new blog in London but I won’t let this go….. My first home for the last year will again become my second home; time to save up for a little property in France one day. In the meantime I’ll be visiting regularly to learn more about this wonderful, diverse region and pass it to you….. through my Provence blog. Thank you for continuing to follow it….
