|A wild daffodil|
you thought this would be out in March - I bet!
I know, it is April, not March. Just a little late.
Spring has arrived. It has been warmer than normal, and I find that the warm weather and sunshine are wonderful. Flowers have bloomed and so have the trees. Bees are a buzzing.
As always in March,Marsannay-la-Côte has a "Journées Gourmandes". Keith and I decided to head over there and see what we could have for lunch. There is a wealth of choices of things to eat. This year they even had fried frog legs, but I did not go there. I picked a charcuterie plate (assiette) and Keith had oysters and cheese. We bought some fresh bread and a glass of wine. Could it get any better?
|So simple and yet SO GOOD...the ham was sublime|
One of the warm days I stopped by the old mill just outside of Messanges. The mill had been given to the Catholic church at Cluny ( not this exact one, the mill in the photo was built later) by the family Vergy. It is now an historic monument.
|The red dot on the right of the mill is the historical plaque|
|Yes-my feet, I decided to take a moment and listen to the birds and enjoy the sun.|

|Ah those grapevines and flowering fruit trees|

Yesterday, Keith and I both thought to surprise each other. I had gone over to Chambolle-Musigny for their Fete, and I found some goat cheese. Keith on coming home from Bligny, stopped at a little shop on a goat farm and bought some goat cheese. Mmmm, guess what we had last night.

|Did not want to do a "portrait" so did a family tree!!|
Kind of ran out of steam at the end...
This salad is so good and yet so easy.
Toss together and enjoy
