Une marée de narcisses et de jonquilles


On Sunday before the weather changed, I was taking a walk in Madame Elisabeth's domain. It was warm in the sunshine! To see more of Louis the 16th's sister's grounds, click on the label below!
Thank you for all your wishes yesterday for my love's birthday and sorry I didn't make it to most of your blogs, but after all it was his day !
---------------------------
Dimanche avant que le temps ne se gâte, j'ai fait une promenade dans le domaine de Madame Elisabeth, soeur de Louis XVI, et il faisait bon au soleil ! Pour en savoir plus sur ce domaine, cliquez sur le tag ci-dessous !
Merci pour vos gentils souhaits d'anniversaire pour mon chéri hier et désolée de n'avoir pu tous vous rendre visite.

Beautiful flowers and I am happy your sweetie had a good birthday even if you were together long distance.

bfarr said...

Love both of these. I am a big fan of flowers.

Jacob said...

You have captured beautifully the glory of spring...I can almost feel the warmth and smell the flowers!

Daffodils sure know how to chase the winter blues away!

The composition of the top picture is perfect. There wasn't as much spring in the often-chilly SF Bay area. We're home now and happy to return to this kind of scene.

La demeure est bien couronnée avec tout ce jaune!

I could be quite happy in Madame's Domain. I expect it comes with French cheese?

James said...

Both are wonderful but I love the top photo.

So pretty! I like how you did the large foreground in the first picture. It gives it a secluded feel.

C'est vrai que c'est frais et joyeux, tout ce jaune!
Et le bâtiment derrière est magnifique, très classique.
Seraient-ce d'horribles sculptures modernes, ces trucs rouges devant la porte?

Very pretty scene on such a nice day. Daffs always brighten up any area.

I haven't named anyone yet. The babies aren't mine---the neighbors. They have about 15 mares. MB

A wonderful sight, if not for those red horrors some great mind has placed in front of the building.

Laurent said...

Magnifique !

Loree said...

What an awesome place. Beautiful park and architecture.

Woody said...

I love large gardens of daffodils, they are very beautiful' these even more so given their location.

I missed yesterday, Happy Birthday to your love! My birthday is today :-)

A beautiful spring scene with a decidedly French accent. But what are those red things that look like enormous skis?

Sharon Van Lieu said...

Very beautiful, Ciel. And best wishes to your love!

Beautiful photos. I love daffodils and all the other spring flowers. This looks a lovely place to take a stroll on a warm day.

But what are those red sticks. They look like very large skis??

EG Wow said...

The gardens are so beautiful!

Umwerfende Frühlingsbilder und auch von mir noch die allerherzlichsten Glückwünsche an Deinen Chéri nachträglich zu seinem Geburtstag.

How beautiful! Our daffodils are gone now but I sneaked some in today on my blog. We can pretend we're in France! :)
