This spring’s bumper crop

Today, the last day of March, we have been basking in truly enjoyable weather, with lots of sunshine and a temperature of just above 20 degrees Celsius.

At a house beside Daglan’s main square, a family had set out a table this afternoon, and with a group of friends were enjoying a late lunch there. Much laughter ensued.

In this environment, you’re sure to see lots of flowering plant activity, and one of the most prominent crops these days is the lowly dandelion.

Walnut trees are slower to come into leaf.

If you can get over the idea that a dandelion is a weed, they’re actual quite beautiful, I think.
