Yesterday's ride

Got out on my local 56 kilometre loop yesterday. For once, we've had decent rainfall here over the last weeks, and on my recent rides I noticed alot of wild flowers, sometimes counting as many as fifteen different kinds, although I could only identify a few by name. Spring is the best season here, green and almost lush, and all the better for knowing that in a few weeks it will all be burnt brown by the Mediterranean sun. Anyway, I took my camera with me and took snaps of most of the varieties I saw, poppies, wild roses and wild honeysuckle amongst them. The last pic is of one of my favourite stretches of road here, wild, high and mostly traffic free. The mountain on the horizon is the Pic Saint Loup.
