Laconnex, Switzerland

Spring has definitely sprung here in Geneva. The Wisteria is blooming everywhere in and out of the city. We were invited to dinner at friends in the tiny village of Laconnex. The village is only 20 minutes to a half hour going south west out of town. It is so close to the city yet one is definitely in the country. I always find that such a wonderful experience here. If you drive sometimes as little as 10 minutes you can be in the country. The population of Laconnex is 696 people. Our friends have purchased and renovated the villages "laitrie" which is where they would process milk products and convert them into cream and butter years ago. The wisteria outside their entrance way is spectacular and the scent in the air divine. We shared good food, fantastic wines and many memories.
