Then and Now

The Monet above is one of many sunny images of the Impressionists' riverside paradise of Argenteuil - images from another France, another age. Yesterday a jihadist was arrested in a much changed (for the worse) Argenteuil as he prepared to stage yet another atrocity in the name of the 'religion of peace'...

Eh bien, it's a gloriously sunny Good Friday, and on my way to the baker's to buy hot cross buns this morning I spotted another dozen or more Brimstones flying, and a surprisingly fresh-looking Tortoiseshell. It seems it's raining Brimstones this spring.
