Worst debut picture day ever

It's raining and I can't ride the scooter to get any pictures of the area because I'm even more of a wimp when it comes to riding in the rain. So...




Here is the colour of the sky today :(





And here is a very yellow plant called a mimosa. I found it on the side of a hill on the day that the south of France was mysteriously covered in snow. This tree had been bent to the ground with the weight of the snowflakes, but it's since recovered and is now covered in rain (as shown in this photo).

In the last few weeks, trees like this have been featured in the flower festivals and carnivals. Here are some images I didn't take: http://www.mandelieu.com/events/Fete_du_Mimosa/diaporama_fete_mimosa/slide_show_mimosa.php3

I'll have more of my own tomorrow.
