Electricity and Spring : miscellanea

Unbelievable but true : only one week after the former intervention the electricity men passed again and linked the house with the underground electricity supply. From now on we have arrived in modern electricity age : The electricity posts are obsolete now and will be removed in some near future.
They also put an extra cabin - the so called boîte de fausse coupure. Thanks to this cabin in case of electricity problems one house alone can be cut off the electricity supply, it is no longer necessary to cut off the whole neighbourhood.

All week we worked in the garden: planted and trimmed. It was very lovely sunny weather, but always accompanied by the vent d'autan, a wind coming from the south, from Toulouse. It is often called the wind of the fools because apparently it makes foolish and nervous. So far I haven't noticed this on me.

Now at last nature is really alive and kicking: not only the trees (picture: ash, frêne) and the flowers (picture: wild tulips) but also the herons are back.
And also a lot of hares romping in the fields - only because of the foolish wind? Unfortunately they are always too quick to make pictures of them.
