Yes, our blue skies are back again. I know I’m rubbing it in, but being English means that I have been endowed with a lifelong fascination with the weather. I just can’t stop talking about it. Think of it as an inherent need that us Brits have, to prove to the rest of the planet that we too have the right to some sunshine. And as I happen to live in a corner of the Alps which possesses its own micro-climate, I get to boast about near perfect weather conditions all year round. Sorry.
Even though spring is some way off and most of the vegetation is still a murky brown, I couldn’t resist this shot of the farm yesterday. I know that I am lucky enough to reside in a place that most people would only think about when choosing a holiday destination, but contrary to what you might think, life’s not always a ball here. Living in an isolated, mountainous community does have its difficulties and peculiarities.
Of course, having said that, a decent view en route to the local supermarket does go a long way in taking some of the grind out of grocery shopping.
