February 2021

 Spring is arriving here now. The weather has been mostly mild and sunny through February with a few very wet days thrown in as well. We have started cutting the grass again and the Spring flowers are in bloom. We have been busy tidying the vegetable patch ready for planting and have enjoyed several local bike rides as well.

At the beginning of the month we had a walk in the Soulcem valley. There was still a reasonable amount of snow on the ground and the lake was partly frozen, but it was a lovely day for a walk and we had it almost to ourselves! Above is one of the photos that I took and my watercolour from this photo.

There is still an evening curfew here from 18h each day and bars and restaurants remain closed, but other than that we can get out and about and see friends in small groups.

January 2021

Lots of snowy pictures this month.
We had a very heavy fall of snow here during the second weekend of January which was lovely. It made up just a little for not being able to go skiing this winter. Everywhere looked so beautiful and we managed to fit in a couple of low mountain walks while it lasted as well. It didn't last long enough to become a problem!

We have been fortunate not to be in lockdown in France since Christmas but are expecting it could happen any time soon. We have been able to meet up with a few friends for lunch and music but everyone needs to be home before the 18h curfew.
Its good to have a certain amount of freedom, but at the same time, we are impatient for Covid cases to drop low enough for everyone to be able to travel freely again
