No flowers around yet, so instead I’ll share this photo of a flowering tea.  Tea leaves are wrapped around dried flowers and tied at the bottom.  When steeped, the leaves open, revealing the flower/s.  It’s a joy to watch the unfurling as well as to see the finished “flower” and drink the tea.

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.
