Well I spent two days in bed catching up on blogs and reading. Even watched a great movie on the laptop - an Italian thing called La Vita e' Bella, Life is Beautiful. If I said I didn't shed a tear at the end, I would be fibbing. It was a sad/happy ending in different ways but it might have been my sore back that made me get a bit misty.

On the side bar of our blog are links to a couple of blokes from the US that settled in France. I caught up with their progression to retirement in the Loire, looking for and buying a property. Check out their blogs.
So this weekend's blog is like a rudderless boat, bouncing around with no direction really. As I walked out, no hobbled out the front door with Sue to go to my doctor's appointment, I couldn't help but to admire the bulb's in our garden sprouting green things out of the earth. I have no idea what colours will sprout from the green, only that spring is not far away.
|Sue, I planted all these bulbs here (or was it you) years ago and I still don't know what flowers emerge.|
|The Camelia bush now has lotsa buds and the first two flowers have emerged.|
|The weeping cherry is starting to bud - Our pet Beagle Mac is buried below it and it seems we might have Beagle shaped blossom this year. (did I really say that?)|
|Alyssum is sprouting out allover the the paving - lookin' good.|
|Even Rosita our Moggy it starting to get spring fever.|

Michel has been to OZ for the Worlds where I met him and we've caught up in Paris 2009 and 2010.
