No. 156: Signs of Springtime in Paris
After a seemingly endless and bold fall, and a warm and mild winter (en fait, I’m not even sure winter ever visited), springtime in Paris has already arrived. Here are a few signs, in case you need some convincing. I shot all of these photos this morning, I promise.
The daffodils are blooming along the Quai.
The legions of tourists are back and queuing everywhere.
The grass is STILL resting, comme d’habitude.
The Eiffel Tower has some gorgeous new arm candy.
That rascal, Taz, is digging in the flowers.
The rooftops are in top form.
The Parisians have swapped out part of their black wardrobe in favor of vivid colors.
The annuals have been planted and are blooming just like the flowering trees.
It’s time to decide which warm weather handbag to use.
comme d’habitude: as usual
Beautiful flowers Nancy! Cute doggie, as usual!
He’s a keeper. I like to think of him as Paris’ cutest four-footed ex-pat. 🙂
Oh springtime…it’ll get here someday. It’s cold and snowy in Denver today!
It will arrive eventually. Even though Colorado boasts 300-days-of-sunshine, March is the snowiest month, n’est pas?
Thank you for the gorgeous springtime photos….It snowed here yesterday and was 8 degrees this morning…enjoy the lovely days in Paris!
Oh, crud. It’s still snowing there? March is the snowiest month au Colorado, n’est pas? (Not to rub it in). Knocking on wood and hoping winter has really come and gone here in Paris.
What a wonderful morale booster for cold and sick Ohioans. Thank you!
Mon plaisir. I was worried it might be a bit of a downer for all my friends Stateside still in the middle of winter.
Oh, be careful…when I announced an early Spring last year, winter came back with a vengeance…Though I think this year we are safe! (Suzanne)
C’est vrai. I’m a little worried about jinxing things in Paris.
The Eiffel Tower looks lovely with the blossoms!
It does doesn’t it? Fingers crossed we don’t get a March frost that knocks them all off.
