A few end-of-winter brighteners

Winter is breaking up in the Greater Daglan Area, and for that we’re truly grateful. We’ve had several months in which grey seemed to be the most dominant colour. So in the spirit of the coming spring, today I’m offering just a few visual brighteners.

First, here’s a tree that I photographed yesterday (March 6) in the nearby town of Gourdon:

In full bloom, in early March.

And here’s a bright orange hot air balloon that I saw hovering above the village of Castelnaud (about 10 kilometres north of Daglan), on February 20:

Up, up and away!

Finally, here’s a scene that you probably wouldn’t associate with the Greater Daglan Area; there is a connection, although it’s fairly tenuous. However, all will be revealed in a later posting.

Meanwhile, enjoy the view:

No, that’s not the Dordogne River.
