We’re back in full swing now at the school and enjoying the rhythm of spring in Provence. After a mild winter and rain early in the season the wild flowers are stunning.
Angela, our Australian student who first came to school three years ago and has since become a firm friend and great lover of St Saturnin, has YES! bought the house she dreamed of in St Saturnin. Here are the happy photos of her on the day of the signing – we had a party to celebrate with our French host Francis. When she moves into her house Angela is going to miss Francis’s cooking but I think she will be a regular visitor chez lui. Francis wrote a very touching poem in French to welcome Angela to St Saturnin. We are thrilled to have her here.
Yesterday we had a delightful afternoon at the gardens of Salagon at Mane. The mistral wind was blowing but we managed to find sheltered spots and the spring garden was well worth seeing. We finished the afternoon with a visit to the pretty town of Forcalquier. The shopping there is excellent and very tempting when you have just bought your house in Provence!
Francis and I spent a few quiet moments in one of the ‘world’ gardens at Salagon.
We still have some places available on our spring and summer courses – come and see us!
