Spring on its way in Charmant Som…


C’est le 24 mai et il fait chaud à Grenoble. Les fleurs ont poussé, les oiseaux chantent, les lézards flânent sur les murs de pierre et les pigeons deviennent des derviche tourneurs en essayant de séduire une femelle. Mais à 1670m, à Charmant Som, on voit encore de la neige et ça caille. C’est calme, les vaches et les cochons ne sont pas encore là et c’est très paisible. En regardant la terre, on découvre des fleurs qui commencent à pousser – et c’est beau !

It’s May 24th and the weather’s warm in Grenoble. Spring has sprung: the flowers have bloomed, the birds are singing, the lizards are hanging out on stone walls and the male pigeons are madly dervishing in an attempt to attract a mate. But at 1670m (5479 ft.), in Charmant Som, pockets of snow facing North impose on the green, sunny landscape and it’s a bit chilly. It’s calm, the cows and the pigs have yet to arrive and it’s very peaceful. Upon observing the large and slightly rocky lawn, one discovers a variety of flowers that are sprouting – and it’s beautiful!

      Aww thanks! Well the last few days have been rainy/cloudy/humid. Hoping for good weather this weekend as we have a BBQ in the countryside planned! I hope that you have a beautiful, sunny weekend – with plenty of flowers! Bises.
