Snow is very seldom seen in Saint-Chinian – temperatures are rarely low enough, and if they are then it is usually very dry. So when it does snow it’s a memorable occasion and everyone takes pictures!! Last year on February 28, Saint-Chinian was briefly snow-covered!
The snow is fun while it lasts, but it never lasts long – usually it’s gone by the end of the day!
This year, the weather on February 28 could not have been more different!! It was a beautifully sunny and bright day, with all the promise of spring in the air!
The mimosa trees were in full flower, spreading their heavenly perfume!
The almond trees were blooming too, the flowers creating a delicate pink haze around the otherwise naked branches!
To my mind, blooming almond trees herald spring like nothing else! There’s something about an almond tree in full flower that the camera just cannot capture – believe me, I’ve tried again and again over the years!
The roses are beginning to leaf out:
Have you seen any signs of spring yet??
