The end of February/beginning of March signal spring here. The almond trees come first. They start to reflect the amaranthine white flowers in the vineyards. Now the other fruit trees are starting to blossom. Our apricot tree and soon the cherry and pear. Provence is a region of fields and fields of fruit trees - buds swelling and bursting. Our girls are thriving too. They make their ’nests’ in the fields, traipse through a baby olive grove, explore the orb around our house in the evening glow. Plead for another push on the swing - heading straight into the slanting sun.
