Vous avez besoin de bois ?


The American East coast has sent us some leftover snow. On the Avenue de Paris, the trees have been dabbled with again, so if you need some wood, now's the time to get it but careful, it's very slippery. Sorry for not having had the time to visit your blogs yesterday.
--------------------------------------
Si oui, c'est sur l'avenue de Paris que ça se passe, avant ramassage mais attention, ça glissait hier soir... Désolée de n'avoir pas pu faire ma tournée des blogs hier soir.

How cool that they consolidate the tangled and fallen wood to be recycled back into the environment by becoming dissolved through the process of making us feel warm and receptive.

Rebecca said...

We have lots more snow to send you!

Woody said...

It's interesting that the wood is available to come and pick up and the snow makes it very beautiful.

I hope you don't get leftovers from the storm we are having now!! We're getting a BUNCH!

Pour ceux qui ont des cheminees c'est une belle occasion. C'est donc repartit a la neige par chez toi.

Jacob said...

I've heard about the snow in Paris (very unusual, they say) and figured you'd probably get some, too.

Do you mean people can help themselves to the wood?

Love these soft, snowy evening shots. Hope all is well, Ciel.

I'm sorry you had to settle for left-overs. I suspect you're just as happy not having the full East-Coast meal to deal with, though.

Lovely photo!

Maybe they are going to make broken chairs with these broken branches! ;-)

Gunn said...

Well, I guess I will find out what it is like tomorrow:-)
We got more snow too this morning, probably all the way from America via Paris...
Is this wood free?? I guess someone will take it?

DaveM said...

I like how they prune the trees in Paris, it must be the quest for neatness and uniformity. I like the lightiing in the pictures, I can feel the cold.

Olivier said...

hier c'est bien tombé, un peu de bois pour faire un feu de cheminé serait sympathique ;)

cieldequimper said...

@ all: there's no sign saying that you can't help yourself, so I assume that it's allowed!

Small City Scenes said...

Boy those trees really did get pruned or as my Mother says "edited". Sorry about all the snow. No more nice days for us for awhile---just gray skies and lots of rain. MB

Looking at this it's almost spring here...

Malyss said...

Et nous, hier on avait les manteaux ouverts,et les lunettes de soleil (bon aujourd'hui, il pleut, ça compense!)
je crois savoir efffectivement que c'est interdit de ramasser le bois. J'ai lu quelque chose la -dessus quelque part.
Ta première photo est superbe, très poetique..

Steffe said...

I think you could be correct about this being American snow as it looks a bit different from the snow where I live!

Cezar and Léia said...

The first picture is some dream...I'm enchanted!BEAUTIFUL! :)

*** here today is snowing again :(

Catherine said...

On se croirait retournés à Noël....La neige, le bois pour la cheminée, les petits sapins....Mais quand passerons nous à autre chose ?

B SQUARED said...

I'm sure they would gladly send you as much as you need.

Cergie said...

Apparemment les arbres ont été élagués et le travail a été bien fait.
Il est arrivé une fois, et même plusieurs, que la tempête fasse tomber des troncs et des branches au moins dans le bois du Hazay près de chez moi comme je l’ai constaté et c’est resté longtemps.
Et sans doute aussi dans le bois de Lapelote de l’autre coté mais comme je n’étais pas allée dans çui là et donc que j’ai pas vu il est possible qu’il ne s’y soit rien passé…

The long, snowy road draws the eye further away, making me want to keep going. Very nice composition!

Per Stromsjo said...

Would anyone bother if there had been a sign stating the opposite? ;)

Halcyon said...

We have a pile of wood outside our house already. We're still trying to find someone to take it!

Unfortunately, we do not have a working fireplace. Just gas logs (which really are quite cosy).

il fallait anticiper la ST Jean

Cergie said...

AHAHA ! Ciel de Quimper n'a pas les yeux dans sa poche !
Cependant le lutin blond avait des tongues, la maman du lutin par contre a fait le sentier pieds nus car elle avait oublié ses chaussures de marche à Kourou et puis elle aime marcher sur le sol meuble et sentir la boue coller entre ses doigts (de plus c'est curieux mais il n'y a pas en cet endroit de petits palmiers à grandes épines comme je trouvais en Côte d'Ivoire où une fois je m'en suis enfoncée une énorme dans la botte. Imagine comment enlever la botte ensuite avec l'épine fichée dedans.)
Bon WE à toi !

Beau les deux photo; cela me change du soleil ; la neige offre cette belle peinture ; je te souhaite un excellent weekend.

JM said...

The wood pile on top makes for a wonderful photo, Ciel!

Oh the poor trees, they are not equipped for the snow, I suppose.
