This month began with a lovely week skiing at Morillon in the French Alps. There is no lack of snow this year and we had a few fresh falls while we were there, so with a bit of sunshine as well, conditions were perfect.
We also had a superb day in Andorra with friends from England who were staying there - again, the snow is not in short supply this year.
The clay soil in the Ariege is still very wet from Winter rainfall and it is astonishing to see how the land is slipping away on some of the steeper slopes. However it has been a very mild winter, the only really cold and snowy spell being in November.
This is a quiet time of year for us workwise, so we have been able to get out and about and enjoy the clear air on sunny days. The mountains really do look wonderful at the moment.
The geese have been laying eggs! We have eaten a few but hope they will soon start sitting on them so we get a few baby goslings in a month or so.
