Did you know it is spring time here in France? Spring time is when all the flowers come out to play with the butterflies, and make all of the countryside beautiful.
There are all kinds of flowers here, and there is one in every colour you can think of.
Jojo likes to pick them and bring them back to our boat Joyeux.
Sometimes we have so many Papa thinks it is a flower shop.
Inside every flower is a little ball of yellow powder called pollen. Perhaps Mummy will show you some pollen in a flower in your garden.
There are so many flowers here, and so much pollen, that it all falls out of the sky like dust.
There is so much on Joyeaux that sometimes when we get up it looks yellow not blue.
All the pollen makes Papa sneeze, great big scary noisy sneezes.
But all the honey bees really love the springtime. They collect as much pollen as they can on their legs, and take it home to feed their children.
I wonder if it makes them happy.
Watching all the flowers and the bees makes US very happy.
Give yourself a big hig from us, and blow bubbles on Elliott’s tummy!
Love Papa and Jojo
