Des lumières dans la neige et des poinsettias aux fenêtres


Lit windows in the snow to come home to and poinsettia windows to wish you all a happy New Year's Eve! The summer view of the 'poinsettia house' is this way.
***********
Bon réveillon de la Saint-Sylvestre à tous ! La vue estivale de la "maison aux poinsettias" c'est par ici.

I love the red poinsettia with the stone house as background.

Woody said...

Happy New Year, Ceil!!!
I really like how the poinsettia's pop against the stone, they are beautiful.

Two very fine photographs that fill me with a sense of peace. I wouldn't mind at all coming home to that gorgeous maison - actually either one. The bottom house is stunningly beautiful.

Are you having fun yet?

Re your question on Stone Creek - No, the golf course is not walled it...that's a retaining wall along one side of the 9th fairway.

Tous mes voeux pour vous pour 2011! (Please don't laugh at my French! Well, you can laugh, it's probably pretty funny!)

I love the vivid red in the second photo but the first photo is absolutely stunning.

Bob Crowe said...

How perfectly elegant. And you still have snow - everything here has turned to chilled mud.

SRQ said...

Wonderful captures. They have a magical feel to them...almost as if such a pretty serene place couldn't exist.

Love the vibrant red flowers against the dead vines and brown stone. Happy new years Ciel!

Truly lovely. I liked the other photos in the slideshow form as well.

Wishing you a Happy New Year and looking forward to more photos from the Versailles region in 2011.

Lully in the background gives your blog a regal bearing...Merci beaucoup!

I always thought poinsettias were indoor plants. The house looks very "Christmassy". Have a Happy New Year.

Cergie said...

Des poinsettias à l'extérieur je n'en reviens pas ! En plastoc maybe (ou en soie !!!!).
Par contre c'est sans doute la maison d'un alsacien exilé à Versailles car pas de fête de fin d'année sans une "étoile de Noël" chez soi (qui a les couleurs du houx. Vert et rouge).

Traumhaft schöner Jahresabschluss!!

liebe Ciel,

Mögen es gute Tage werden und möge das neue Jahr ein Geschenk sein, das behutsam aufgepackt sein will. Mögen Deine Pläne aufgehen, möge das Leben gelingen, Deine Wege behütet sein und Du und die Deinen gesund bleiben. Das wünsche ich sehr und schicke helle Grüße zu Dir.

Diane said...

Charming - I love the little canopy over the door too. xxxx

Thérèse said...

Des poinsettias comme ici! Je n'en reviens pas. Isolées dans l'espace géographique ce sont de belles belles plantes.
Je vous souhaite une bonne année 2011 et merci pour vos passages en 2010.

Such beautiful holiday scenes! Happy New Year to you!

Malyss said...

J'aime bien les gens qui decorent le dehors de leurs maisons, ça fait rever sur ce qu'on peut trouver à l'interieur..
J'espère que tu es bien arrivée, et que tu commences à profiter!
Bon reveillon!

Birdman said...

Ah... the fast-fading holiday season. HNY 2011.

LOVELY end of the year photo, Ciel!


All the best in 2011!

Two beautiful homes. This winter view with the red poinsettia has a charm lacking in the summer view.

Gunn said...

Beautiful places!
Thanks for sharing these beautiful images with us.

Becky said...

I cannot believe how beautiful the area around you is. How jealous I am of Europeans! Though, granted we Americans do have the Grand Canyon, the Rocky Mountains, the Oregon Coast, and many other natural beauties. Thanks for sharing your corner of the world with us, Ciel!
