A few weeks after we first moved to Switzerland we made a little sojourn to Chaumont, to ride the funiculaire and take in the view. Crossing the suspension bridge to the lookout tower a sudden fear of heights gripped me in the most inexplicable way, and I had to turn back.
This weekend I returned with our visitors to this very spot, and am happy to report that eighteen months later I scampered up that tower completely untroubled. A small victory. To the left are a pair of lusty bees, sacs fat with pollen. Below are some other bits of loveliness we found along the way.
