Les jonquilles et les narcisses de l'avenue de Paris


I haven't had time to go out and shoot new material since my return from Seattle but I did go check the daffodils on Monday. This long, long row greets you when you arrive from Paris on D 910 road. For last year's view, click here!

Je n'ai pas eu le temps d'aller faire des photos fraîches depuis mon retour de Seattle mais je suis tout de même allée voir les jonquilles de l'avenue de Paris. Pour une vue de l'année passée, cliquez ici !

Daffodils are such cheerful harbingers of spring. They make me smile and the fragrance is heavenly.

akarui said...

Un air de printemps aussi par chez vous. J'aime bien la premiere avec cette bande de jonquilles qui nous fait traverser la photo.

Jacob said...

Very beautiful! I remember last year's photo and I think you've posted at least one other photo of this road from this angle, right?

Woody said...

It's nice to see the daffodils are out in your part of the world too. Ours are just starting.

T. Becque said...

Nice angle!

Small City Scenes said...

What a cheery greeting. Aren't Daffodils just the happiest flower. MB

Tammie Lee said...

Louis la Vache said...

This is a very nice bouquet for your readers, Ciel!

Per Stromsjo said...

Gee, arriving by the D 910 road is the way to go.

Un air de printemps Ah oui les jonquilles, je me souviens quand j'étais petit lorsqu'on allait en chercher dans les bois pour faire des gros bouquets qui ensoleillaient la maison pour maman.

Olivier said...

c'est officiel, c'est le printemps, les jonquilles de Versailles sont de sorties. sur la premiere photo, on a une impression d'un chemin infini

Bergson said...

il y a beaucoup plus de voitures que l'année dernière l'effet grenelle de l'environnement

Malyss said...

ça, ce sont des fleurs qui évoquent vraiment le printemps!J'adore leur nom anglais, Daffodils..

Loree said...

I love visiting your blog and reading your posts in English and French. The daffodils are gorgeous.

Versailles à des jardiniers qui manquent un peu de fantaisie...

Paulie said...

Definitely a beautiful site with so many lined up like that!

You told me to email you but so far I have not discovered an email to send back to you. I will keep looking. Maybe Malyss can help me. Maybe if you posted on my main blog, since I moderate comments, there might be an addy there? Let me know what I can do to accomplish this.

Ciel, you so often start my day with a smile. This is definitely one of those days. Beautiful.

Cergie said...

La vosgienne que je suis toujours rectifie : ce sont des narcisses plutôt que des jonquilles. L'effet de masse est spectaculaire, original et pas déplaisant...

JM said...

A really long row! How lovely!

Halcyon said...

Gorgeous! Do you think they replant them every year? Or they come back up?

That would be a lot of work!

Rebecca said...

Welcome spring!

cieldequimper said...

@ Cergie : mais il y a un mélange, non ? Je suis d'accord pour dire que le gros plan ce sont des narcisses. Mais les toutes jaunes, ce sont bien des jonquilles ?

@ Halcyon: excellent question. I have never yet seen city gardeners at work there, so maybe they just stay in place.

The most fabulous sign that spring has finally sprung, wonderful aren't they? :o)

Leif Hagen said...

Spring has sprung in Versailles! U R a few weeks ahead of us I think!

VP said...

A beautiful sight and the names of the flowers are almost identical in Italian. Replanted or not, someone takes good care of these flowers.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

You and MB are making me feel very jealous! ;-) The daffodils are delightful!

Tash said...

The green with the strip of narcissuses is so pretty. Nice homage to spring.

Suzanne said...

No matter what year, jonquils or daffadils are always a welcome sighting of spring.

tapirgal said...

It's funny seeing the same, or nearly the same flowers on the other side of the world. Our local daffodils don't have the big ruffly centers, though. At least not the ones I've seen this year so far. I'll keep looking. They must be here somewhere. I love your shot with the spring colors!

Cergie said...

Ciel !
Des narcisses y en a de toutes sortes et même des tout jaunes !
Les jonquilles c'est rustique pour ne pas dire montagnard, donc petit et joli, il te faut regarder car si la taille de tes fleurs est uniforme, hum...
Voici une photo prise dans mon jardin l'année dernière d'authentiques jonquilles vosgiennes parfaitement intégrées à la RP.

James Mark said...

Great! York daffodils tomorrow - if the weather is good enough!
