L'automne se transforme doucement en hiver


Some of you might remember this little house in the summer. Have a look, it's this way. It is located on the edge of town, just opposite the entrance to Fausses-Reposes forest.

Vous vous souviendrez peut-être de cette maison en été. Non ? Alors regardez ici. Elle se trouve à la lisière de la forêt de Fausses-Reposes et du département des Hauts-de-Seine.

Who could possibly miss this? I think it is just as stately and elegant in the winter and in all the summer glory! Is it a private home?

While the bright colors of the summer pic are inviting, I really like this winter shot. I love seeing snow at this time of year!

bfarr said...

What a charming house.

Woody said...

Cool! I've always wanted to take a photo from the same location each season. I really like the style of that house.

What a cute little house. I certainly wouldn't want to get up on that roof.

Leif Hagen said...

I love that house - it kinda looks like a gingerbread house - yumm!

Randy said...

What a cheerful looking home. The second shot look so peaceful too.

Halcyon said...

It looks nice under the snow as well!

Another fairytale picture. Very pretty.

Malyss said...

Elle a un petit côté maison de conte de fées,surtout avec la neige; mais est-ce celle de la sorcière ou de la gentille princesse?..

It is enchanting and possibly enchanted. MB

Jilly said...

What an intriguing house. And so pretyt in the snow.

Dina said...

Yes, that's it, a gingerbread house! Leif is right.
I'd like to walk on the snow in your woods.

DaveM said...

Interesting stonework, I bet a geologist would have a good time identifying all those. I wonder if they are local stones?

j'adore les photos à différentes saisons

les 2 sont colorées ; le jardinier bosse à fond

Versaille is much more magical than Disneyland. xxxxx

VP said...

The snow is quite convincing as a prelude to winter...

The word 'hiver' makes me quiver! It just SOUNDS cold. Love the little building. So elegant!

Very different from the summer version. But still beautiful.

Catherine said...

Ca pourrait être une maison de retraite.....J'sais pas, j'dis ça à cause de Fausses-Reposes. Ca me chiffonne cette appellation.

B SQUARED said...

A charming little place.

EG Wow said...

I recognize it as the same place...but it sure does look different in the snow.

Kaori said...

It looks quite different, but the house is as lovely as ever :-D

Small City Scenes said...

Jack Reacher, eh. Well there was no body in the pond but there was a beautiful woman standing by (hahaha).
I recently read 61 Hours and am waiting for the latest, Worth dying For, to come out in paperback or maybe I will buy it in hardback. MB

Birdman said...

What an interesting looking home.

Loree said...

Autumn seems to have passed us by and I am hoping winter will make an appearance soon.

Small City Scenes said...

I have read every single one of the Jack Reacher novels. You don't need to read them chronologically but I wanted too and it helps you understand him more. MB

Abraham Lincoln said...

You really do know how to make a fabulous post with photos and music and a bit of history. Thanks for this post.

Tammie Lee said...

such a wonderful house, with a nice steep roof to let the snow slide off.

Louis la Vache said...

«Louis» remembers seeing this house in Versailles.

Sharon Van Lieu said...

What a charming house! I like the brickwork patterns.

Très franchement cela te réussit bien de mettre un bon cache-nez et de te promener en forêt, les deux derniers posts avec neige poudreuse sont extra, et tu as même abondamment saupoudré la petite maison en pain d'épice de sucre glace, ça fait très envie !
Ouais ! Je voudrais du pain d'épice de la Saint Nicolas !

JM said...

Doucement??? :-))) It looks freezing, I wonder what it will be like in January!... Northern Portugal is all white for, at least, a week, which usually happens (and it might not happen) in January/February.
Love this small house by the way.
