Panier of Plenty

A liberal sprinkling of magic

Une vague de froid, inédite depuis cinq ans, s’est installée mardi 17 janvier sur la France

There is something magical about snow falling, especially if it is in a place where it rarely does. Céret is known for its warmth, its vibrant colours, its outdoor lifestyle. The sprinkling of a fine layer of powder has completely changed the mood, as the town and its surrounds take on a misty blue cast…

Back to the kitchen window

… And as suddenly as our little world was transformed, not a trace remains at midday. Bright blue skies and yellow mimosa dominate the landscape again.

Clouds part, Canigou
