The tender young shoots of wild asparagus (asperges sauvages),
harvested from the other “Mas Reste’ (now a luxury auberge)
which lies on the outskirts of the seaside resort of Argelès-sur-Mer…
a forgotten part of the history of the family whose name is
forever linked to les Albères.
As the glorious Mediterranean days return, heavy woollen knits can
now be put into storage (with lavender), for rather than gradually
easing into spring it is ‘all of a sudden’ that flesh is bared, as
the attire requires a tan to accompany the little summer robes that
are pressed and ready in an instant, as the sun beats ceaselesly
and good cheer is restored.
