Picnic at the Léon lake

Yellow spring flowers

I hang up the phone. My mom just told me she's going out again to shovel away some snow. The heaps of snow go all the way up to the roof of their neighbour.

I check the temperature outside. Eighteen degrees. Plus. Let's go for a picnic! Flowers are blooming, sun is shining. Life is good.

By the road we find a dead nutria. It comes from South America and is sensitive to the cold here, but this one has a bullet hole in its back. I check on the internet and it says that they get nuisible because they don't have any natural predators.

Back at home I see our first daffodil blooming...

    Tu vas pouvoir te lancer dans le jardinage..De bons débuts et de très belles photos.

  2. Hello... you are just jealous at our snow and -22 degrees...

  3. Hi Sven... so true! In an act of desperation we are going skiing tomorrow in the Pyrenees! Lots of snow, but 8 degrees ABOVE zero..

  4. Så otroligt fina bilder! Och 18 grader varmt låter som en saga! Men faktiskt har jag äntligen hittat en första liten vårblomma under snön! Snart, snart blir det varmare även här.


Hi! Please say hello! It is so nice to see if somebody has read a post!
