|The mimosa man - wrapped up against the cold|
|Beautiful flowers - hope of spring|
Right now it seems that winter is just starting. I have at last had to drain down the gites, a job I nearly always have to do early in December, but this year, the weather has stayed at such ridiculously high temperatures, it hasn’t been necessary to even consider draining out the water. It has been so warm that in some gardens the fruit trees are starting to blossom and daffodils are starting to flower.

Tonight’s low is predicted to be -8. So is winter coming or is the mimosa man right and spring is just around the corner?
