Whilst writing this post I was thinking back to when I first started this blog in 2013. Back then I couldn’t have imagined that I would never have to look very far for subjects to write about. Can you tell that I am still enjoying the discoveries which I am making when I write and research my weekly posts? Writing has allowed me to look at things differently, to pay more attention as I go through life. Is there anything you would like me to write about? What has been your favourite post? Do please let me know by leaving a comment at the end of this post!
On one of my walks in late December, I came across a grove of mimosa trees, where several of the trees were already in full flower! The grove is in a little dell, not all that far from the cooperative winery in Saint-Chinian, and on the side of a hill. The trees nearest the track seemed to be getting the most sun, as they were the ones flowering. It was a glorious sight to behold, and the scent was heavenly.
I wasn’t the only one to appreciate the blossom, the bees were out in force for a winter feast. The mimosa trees usually flower from late January onwards, but because of the mild winter, many trees are flowering much earlier than usual.
