April in Provence

April is probably my favorite month of the year: "rebirth"....

Our Almond tree starts blosoming in Februray, followed byt our numerous apple and pear trees in March.

And then, in April, it is the explosion !!!
Our plane tree are bright green and it's flowers everywhere. Plus the grass is green!!!

- All shops and hotel reopen
- Everybody is looking forward to the new season, not tired and looking for cashflow so it's smiling time
- Yet the region is not too busy and you can stroll the street and the countryside in a quiet environment.
- However avoid Easter week end when it gets far busier.

Temperature wise expect anything from mid 60s to high 70s.

So did you make up your mind yet ?

Bellow some pictures I took while touring in April 2015.
