Today, April 3rd was the day that it happened, we always listen to the early April bird song for him. Around lunch time the sound echoed across the stormy sky.

The next milestone will be the Swifts arriving in Chinon, the Swallows having already arrived, then summer can be announced.

On the contrary tonight there is going to be a frost so I will be up at 5AM to light a fire under our precious Cherry tree to protect it.

Life in the Loire Valley!
