The start of spring

We have had a lovely week of the most perfect spring weather here in Montpellier.  This town is very beautiful in the sunlight, I think it's the stone of the buildings that makes everything seem so bright and warm already even though we've barely touched March.  It's not quite warm enough yet though, I still leave the house wearing a piece of knitwear and a scarf in my bag just in case.  After 5 o'clock when the sun stops being so strong it does still feel like winter has a grip on the town, but not for long I assume.

Whenever I walk past the flower stalls I grow weak and want to pick up a bunch of roses or daffodils.  Daffodils especially remind me of spring in Cardiff when I'd buy a bunch of daffodils every week for £1 until the season for them was over. But it's not quite the same here, I shall have to find a French equivalent.  

My boyfriend is coming for a weeks visit on Monday but sadly there have been some family healthy issues on my side which has thrown things into uncertainty.  I forget just how frail life can be, and how if you don't have your health you have nothing.  Calm optimism is the way forward for the moment.
