La neige du coucou

This is what our neighbor, Jean-Baptiste used to call the late snow in April / May .. after you’ve heard your first spring cuckoo (which by the way, is the reason why, in spring, you always need a coin or two in your pocket, as hearing your first cuckoo of the year with some money in your pocket brings prosperity!)

So here we are, with snow on the Col des Supeyres, and although our first lettuce plants are struggling to stay alive, it looks absolutely beautiful.
