Giboulées...

When it rains and gets sunny several times in a row during the day, we have a word for that in French; it's called Les Giboulées (April showers in English, according to Wikipedia!). This phenomenon generally happens in March, but this year the weather must be a little desynchronized, as Les Giboulées have started! I took this photo outside my local town hall, and, well, it's a classic, but I still like it;-)

  3. All your photos are fabulous and I think they have never been so beautiful than they now are. But I may think that from a long time. They are fantastic, aren't they?

  4. English hasn't got a precise equivalent, Eric, though of course we have 'showers'. But they happen just the same, those intermittent sun-and-rain days, blissfully unaware they're nameless!

  5. We could use some giboulées; it's snowing here—again. The light in this photo is super!
