I've been trying out my new camera this week in lots of lovely locations in the Ariege. The crisp shadow of this pretty crocus would make an ideal stencil for a quilt design, wouldn't it! The photo was taken going along in the car, up a steep and bumpy mountain road towards Roquefixade.

The pretty church in the main square at Massat has some stunning stained glass windows.
There's a sprinkling of snow on the peaks beyond Plateau de Beille but not on the plateau itself yet so cross-country skiers will have to wait a while longer!
