Today's photos feature (July 4)
Minervois is abuzz with cigales, the constant high pitch clicking humming in the background, often with the sun high - the noise becomes almost too much - as thousands of insects reach their climax! The vines are green now, with grapes in a very green state.
Walking is heightened by the smells of thyme and other herbs, - often coming across old shepherds stone huts - "Capitelles" - to shelter from sun, storm, and night.
The views of hill tops across the Aude valley, summounted by aeolians - alien creatures that have created wind farms - beautiful to view, stunning to stand under.
