No. 107: A Mild Winter

I feel guilty posting these pictures as most of the United States is currently experiencing a deep freeze…bon courage, mes amis.

Meanwhile us folks in Paris are having a very mild winter so far. After our brilliant long-lasting autumn, it seems like spring is already knocking on our door. We are expecting mid-to-high 50s (15-10 C) all week, and we had blue skies all morning.

I add mild winters as one of the things I love about this country, because in my short time in France, I have had two mild winters, and one bone chilling winter. (Fingers crossed that warm bones continue this year.) I’m pretty sure I have been VERY lucky, but coming from a state whose motto is “300 Days of Sunshine”, I am used to bright and sunny winters.

While I’m sure that winter hasn’t come and gone in Paris, the trees and flowers on the Champ de Mars, seem to have their own idea.

bon courage, mes amis: good luck, my friends

  1. I have also felt guilty with posting pictures on the green lawn, mild temperature and sunny skies of Paris but at the same time I am quite happy to be here instead of in Canada or the US. I actually don’t know how I will ever readjust to harsh winter when we get back in 2015!!! Very nice pictures. (Suzanne)
