My Monday walk this week took me through a lot of mud in search of wildflowers.  There were thousands of them (wildflowers, not mud, although there was a lot of that, too) waiting for the sunshine to warm the earth a bit more before bursting briefly into bloom.  I tramped through the mud in search of anything else, when suddenly I discovered this patch of wildflowers in full bloom.  I’ll be going back as soon as possible to check on the progress of the other flowers.  Despite the lack of flowers, it was a soul-soothing two hours.

I have no idea what these flowers are and I haven’t had any luck finding them online.  If any of you know what they are (Judy?), please share!  Trying to identify by online photos isn’t easy!

Just a much-needed bit of color for a winter day.  We’ve been having a lot of grey skies but without the joy (to me) of some lovely snow to brighten things up.  And yesterday we had high winds, too.  But I know spring isn’t too far away and maybe we’ll get some more snow before then.  🙂

I’m dreaming of a French mountain…complete with flowers and a view.  Happy Friday!

The day of the cherry festival, we arrived much too early, which meant we got to wander around Fougerolles.  Near the church and the city hall, we found this small but lovely garden.  I’d love to have it in my yard.

You may be familiar with the song Sur le pont d’Avignon“, “On the Bridge of Avignon.”  These views are sur le point d’Fougerolles, in the Franche-Comté, where we were for the Cherry Festival.  More about that in another post.  For now, flowers.
