Springtime conjures up for me a romantic period of re-growth when buds appear on the trees, waking up to the sunshine streaming through the windows panes, delicious scents of coffee and croissants, lovely days spent walking down the many lanes around Daglan towards the river in gorgeous sunshine and of course dinning outside on our veranda.
We had winter snow in November, just a day or two and a few weeks of frost, fog and the gorgeous mist that tumbles over the Dordogne River. Rain has been the most prominent feature, but the extreme cold has not arrived, well not yet.
The normally tranquil River C’eou,
All of the rivers in the area are swollen to capacity producing rapids and waterfalls.
These friendly horses are from one of the stables we passed on our favourite walk around Daglan last week.
Another stable near to the river, quite a few of the trees are budding early this year.
Daffodils are in bloom in early February!
Not to be missed:-
The Chocolate Festival in Sarlat on the 27th and 28th of February from ten o’clock to six o’clock, featuring master choclatiers of the Perigord, I might need to go on both of these dates!
