LA COTE D’AZUR
4. CANNES – Les Jardins et le Suquet
Left Paris 2120 last night, reached Marseille 1105, 25 m. late, & got down here 1525, 1/4 hour late. Felt very hot, tired, unshaved, hungry & dirty after over 18 hrs. behind French coal dust. However, following bath & shave, feel better but dont [sic] think I’ll go out tonight! The weather here is sure hot, but looks as if clouding up for thunderstorm out to sea S.E. Poppies are out all along the line from Arles onwards, also purple flags growing wild. Peach blossom all over, but lots more out, also geraniums & roses, & first hay crop ready for cutting. They get 3 lots! Swallows have arrived here.
Love,
Hubby.
