Almost there!

Last week was beautiful, sunny and warm but the weather changed quite drastically on Sunday. In actual fact, I went for a walk and literally froze! Coming back from the palace grounds, I liked these sitting on top of a brasserie's verandah!
-------------------------------
La semaine dernière fut printanière jusqu'à dimanche. C'est le jour que j'ai choisi pour aller me promener dans le parc du château et suis revenue congelée. C'est à ce moment que j'ai vu ces jolies fleurs au-dessus d'une brasserie...

These flowers don't seem to be bothered at all by the icy breezes, which is a good thing as they are a sight for cold eyes!

Thanks for stopping at our blogs, CQ...we appreciate that very much, and your comments are always so much fun to read!

All right Cieldequimper (may we ask what that means?):

The photo of the flowers is stunning. Golden yellow, pink, gray, and white together and the \\\\ /// angles is the picture are grand. You have outdone yourself!!!

Olivier said...

perspective originale, en effet le printemps n'était pas très courageux dimanche ;o)) un petit vin chaud après la promenade

Heureusement qu'il y a des fleurs pour rappeler aux "Franciliens" que c'est le printemps.
Bel angle.

Tes couleurs chaudes sont celles du sud et de l'été - ton récit raconte une autre histoire !

Ce sont des fausses fkleurs ou je me trompe ?
Il est beau ton montage posté au dessous des photos du temple de l'amour que la Reine voyait de sa cahmbre. J'ai su que les jardiniers changeait régulièrement le décor floral extérieur en mettant des plantes en pot. Cela se fait encore de nos jours en souvenir de ce temps là.

Nice composition, although I think these flowers are fake, right? :-)))

Frankie / Nick said...

Seeing as you were talking about the cold, I need to ask, that those flowers real?

PERBS said...

I love the angle of your photo. It makes us look even harder --instead of jsut glancing -- at the beautifukl flowers that remind us spring is here even if the weather doesn't show it.

At all who are wondering if these are fake flowers: I blush because I don't know. It didn't even occur to me...

Small City Scenes said...

Beautiful shot. I do love the color of the building. I have always loved a soft yellow. Then with the flower colors---Beautiful!! MB

Neva said...

The weather here has changed to cold as well..love your walk though!

Becky said...

You're on an "askew" kick, I see. :) I really like the colours in this photo. They match and yet contrast very nicely.

I think the only thing that could make it better is if they were clearly real flowers. :)

Jackie said...

These are absolutely lovely -fabulous photo!

bfarr said...
