Glitter in my life

Present at all parties, he is almost part of the family. Yet I don’t see him often because it’s only in the spring that he comes out of his den. From the first rays of sunshine, he is moreover expected as the messiah in my village.

At the start of his season, everyone knows that we will have to be patient. Whether you’re on foot, by bike or by car, you’ll have to wait a bit, but it doesn’t matter. Because when I push the door of his house, there is already a little taste of happiness.

At the helm, the captain has the figure of gluttony and sparkling eyes. In front of him, I can’t remain unmoved by such a pretty palette of colors. Green, pink, caramel, and even purple. Like an orchestra conductor, he juggles with flavors by taking care of the classics and venturing into original compositions. Not stingy with words, he explains to you that he got his milk from the farm next door and that his fruit comes from the neighboring orchard.

With blows of anatella, amarena, and other milk flowers, he then puts glitter in your life without forgetting to say: “I put little colored beads?”
