Spring is here
The blossom is out at Pincardel and the temperature is heating up here in the South of France. We can't wait to open up the swimming pool after Easter and enjoy the garden to its fullest. The wisteria, roses and creepers have all been chopped back and the barn feels so bare after the winter. They will grow back quickly though and we will train them nicely up onto the trellises so we can control them better. Painting the trellises white is on the to-do list this week!
Pincardel is set within 12 private acres yet we are not remote. In just 5 minutes you have the local village shop (Alaigne) where you can pick bread, post letters etc. A few more minutes along you come to the larger village of Belveze du Razes which has more shops, a pizzeria, bar, pharmacy, school and so on.
Other news....I've ordered some new outdoor cushions and can't wait for those to arrive! Will post what they look like when they arrive :-) Also researching outdoor pizza ovens....but one for Father Christmas to bring next Christmas I think.
