Canigou’s manteau d’hiver

Canigou’s winter coat

Just as the tomatoes started flowering again and we were relishing
eating outside in the sun, we are now able to ‘see our breath’ as
a chill wind blows directly from the snow – Canigou has been
shrouded as it continues to snow heavily and the mountain peaks
surrounding us have had a dusting overnight. Our departement has
just come off ‘vigilance orange’ as alerts were given for flooding
– torrential rain fell continuously for days. The wardrobe has
suddenly changed as winter boots and down coats are aired and gloves
and hats prepared…
