Un choix cornélien au marché aux fleurs

'Tis a hard choice at the flower market. I took this photo during a lull between snowstorms. It has been snowing steadily for hours now!
---------------------------------------
J'ai pris cette photo entre deux weekends de neige, parce que depuis hier, qu'est-ce qu'il tombe comme flocons !

Love this. I miss buying the annual Christmas tree, but I don't miss the high prices.

Oh les sapin de noël mon enfant et puis l'odeur est magique.pour ta question! En France je donnais beaucoup de temps au service d’aide médicale d’urgence ; mais pas au SAMU dans un grand hôpital parisien ; ici une caquette de Chirurgien les même études + 11 et comme il dit ici le bon docteur voilà un changement radical mais pas plus calme.

So many trees, so little time! It would appear you're going to have a white Christmas for sure!

Re clam chowder: Not my favorite dish. But Cedar Key's chowder is supposed to be good ... Cedar Key is a huge clamming place ...

I read that Europe got pounded again. I'm jealous; no white Christmas for us this year. It it common for trees to be set in split logs? Clever idea for supporting them.

What a wonderful photo. It reminded me of when our dad used to take us tree shopping.

Jack said...

No, Ciel, you need a BIG tree!!!

Which one will granny pick for the family?

Becky said...

I love, love love, a thousand, nay, a million times love this picture. It. Is. Perfect.

Little Christmas trees? When I was a child the family tradition was that it got closer and closer to Christmas, my mother would get more and more upset with my father for not getting a tree and then, about the 22nd or 23rd, my father and I would drive to a seedy area along the Hudson. Suspicious men huddled around 200 liter oil cans stuffed with burning scrap-wood peddled holiday trees. Time was running out for both buyer and seller. He always came home with a gem.

What a hard choice.

I have been seeing on the news about the weather in your region. Brrrrr!!!
Rain here--as usual. MB

Wonderful child-sized trees.

Birdman said...

Such nice trees.

Malyss said...

Pas de neige ici, ni en haut, ni en bas(=montagne ou cote..)
L'odeur du sapin frais est un regal, le moment du choix un supplice delicieux! :)

Kaori said...

The perfect tree...such a important decision! :-)

PS: I'm trying to figure out what it is about my new page that makes it so heavy...thanks for letting me know!

VP said...

A 'lull between snowstorms'? We got tired after two hours of snow...

Abraham Lincoln said...

I suppose the person with the little trees has to keep removing the snow to keep it from collecting?

Jacob said...

Bon Sunday! Re your comment on Colorado...the blue on the sidewalk indicates the area is reserved for "Handicapped Parking."

Why in the world would you want to go back to school? High school?

EG Wow said...

The trees look healthy but smaller than the ones sold here.:)

SRQ said...

Cute sapines de Noel. I just love the little girl all bundled up and sporting her pretty pink boots. I bet she helped pick the perfect tree!

Cette fois, on y est. Ça sent Noël de partout ! Les sapins sont à la fête. Inoubliables souvenirs d'enfance qui remontent avec un brin de mélancolie.
Belles fêtes de fin d'année à toi,
amitiés
Roger

tombe la neige,sans fin ;o) pas facile de choisir le sapin ou le pere noel viendra deposer les cadeaux

Catherine said...

Pssst ! Miss Bottes Roses ! Plus tu le prends large, plus il pourra abriter de cadeaux. Choisis un du fond, demande à ta maman....

Cezar and Léia said...

Today is the first day in my life that I see snow falling all day long, non stop... I'm impressed (and wondering how it will be to get to work tomorrow...).
God bless you!

These are positively exceptional! Crazy about the little girl in polka dot raincoat. Merry Christmas to you...

Leif Hagen said...

They are cute, little Christmas trees - perfect apartment size!

Luzia said...

Ein schönes Bild! Das kleine Mädchen sieht so niedlich aus mit diesen rosanen Stiefeln. Liebe Grüße von Luzia.

I see that I have missed a charming series of Christmas photos. I will enjoy catching up. This is a wonderful shot - decisions, decisions.
