April 2023 and our holiday to Nice and Tuscany

 April has been a month for travel. We first enjoyed a day trip to Andorra, mostly to buy petrol for the mowers as the strikes here were creating a fuel shortage and purchase of fuel in containers was banned for a couple of weeks. We had a nice day out though as well, including a walk up the lovely valley d'Incles. It was sunny and what snow they had this winter was rapidly disappearing.

We then enjoyed a couple of weeks holiday, firstly in Nice with good friends June and Jim from England, then on to a villa on a vineyard near Lucca in Tuscany with our French friends. We were lucky with the weather and had a great time exploring both the areas and the food and drink in both places.

We have returned to a wilderness of a garden! Plentiful rain and sun during our absence has caused everything to grow crazily! We are very busy this week cutting back, weeding and cutting grass. 

Dave will sort out his photos as soon as he has time! In the meantime, here are a few of mine
