Wednesday Window on Provence
I've been telling my "California Girl-transplanted-to-Minnesota-by-marriage" sister that it's been really cold here in Aix.
Her: "Is it minus 18º?"
Moi: "Well, no...but it's cold!"
Her: "Shut up."
But today there's proof: It up and snowed in our little ville!
Yes, we all woke up to a silent snowy morning here in the south of France.
I headed out into my little rue to see what the other kids were up to.
Not much action in the cafés...
...so not much of a need for these:
The lovely terraces around town looked quite elegant with their dusting of snow...
...but if you were parked, you got much more than a dusting!
Cours Mirabeau looks like a wonderland all decked out in white...
...but the faithful sentinels at the Palais du Justice aren't having such an easy time of it today.
And through it all, the fountains of this sweet and snowy ville are still singing along.
Wishing you all a lovely Wednesday...stay warm!
