The snow reaches South West France!


Happy New Year! Apologies for the belated greeting, but am just recovering from a very nasty coldy/flu bug picked up from a New Years Eve party.

I have been watching all the British news coverage of "The Big Freeze" and I am loving the Blitz spirit,  although I am getting the impression that the novelty of snow has now worn off.

But the snow has now arrived in South West France.  Here in the Pyrenees we are a bit more prepared for it, most people have snow chains, so getting about is not so difficult and we are looking forward to fitting in some skiing next week, so I will be posting some pretty mountain scenes.

Here are some snowy scenes of the garden and surrounding countryside, I took these this morning whilst taking Crusoe for his morning constitutional.



Thank you for visiting French Sampler, I hope you come back soon. I love to read your comments and will reply as soon as I can.
