Royal avenue in spring colours

The first thing anyone driving to Versailles from Paris on road D910 at this time of year will admire is a sea of daffodils on both sides of the avenue!
------------------------------
La première chose que verra le conducteur qui arrive de Paris par la D910 à cette époque de l'année est un océan de jonquilles de part et d'autre de l'avenue !

These daffodils are flowers for Whit who died on Saturday. May he rest in peace and his father find answers and solace.

Beautiful flowers. I didn't know Whit but I am sorry for your loss and for his family.

Jacob said...

Beautifully composed photos, CQ! Colorful, too. A very nice tribute to Whit.

You have, however, re-ignited my urge to go back to Paris/Versailles.

FANTASTIC! We are totally jealous of course. What a treat to see them though. Ours will be perhaps even a couple of weeks this year. Longest dullest winter in living memory. Enjoy your beautiful spring colors.

Lovely. Must make the time pass quickly.

ooh la la, spring!

Beautiful captues.

Kim said...

Wowie zowie! That sort of defines abundance. But then, isn't everything in Versailles on a grand scale? My daffs have not liked the past two winters and have thinned themselves (usually I have to do that).
I read in Raf's comments that you were to have been in Seattle next week but are staying put. :-( Oh well, I hope another opportunity comes up. Thanks for sharing that amazing and beautiful stretch of road.

I missed the dedication to Whit at the end of your post. Truly April is the cruelest month when such life and abundance are mixed with sorrow and loss. May peace be with you and with Whit's father and those who loved him.
