Sounds of Spring in Southern France

I try to give a good impression of what it's like to be here near Toulouse through my photos, but recently I've been so much enjoying the sounds of spring that I wanted to try to share some those with you too.

The sounds of a morning bike ride:

The wind in my ears
a frog in the ditch. The sounds of an evening dog walk:

Screaming boys
and cicadas on the way home.The sounds of the Veti Relais car park (my favourite charity shop):

Planes taking off from Toulouse airport

Hope everyone's having a good weekend!

Thanks for sharing. Beautiful Spring day here - will be in the mid 80's and sunshine. On my way out the door now. Have a great day.

How lovely to go with you on your ride.
I do hope you dont also hear the steady chomping of the Termite? When we lived in the Gironde it was a constant dread.

Looks lovely, apart from the plane going over!!
I commented on my post about the book, not sure if you've seen it :)
