These Spring photos are what is waiting for later, when the
frizzles of February have passed, where even now the almond
tree blossoms, to the times when the grass is green, and blossoms
occur in full flurry.
The Couvent de Notre Dame d'Orient, is as it should be. Quiet. Off the beaten track. Discrete in nature, and nature loves it back. The daily pleasure of beauty in nature, by a wayside cross, close to the convent.
Another place to visit is the Abbaye de Bonnecombe, in the valley of the Viaur, near Rodez.
Where you can marvel at the industry of the monastery. The planning. The poise. The sense of continuance. The balance again with nature and nature applauds back.
