Oh, boy. I love to hear about love affairs. May sound daffy to some, but not to you! That's nice...

And look at this photo...I mean, the daffydills are really pretty, but that light in the trees is heavenly!

You have made my day!! Spring can not be far away. I noticed just today that our daffodils were starting to push out of the dirt.

Jack said...

You are so lucky, Ciel! I love that golden shaft of light, too.

A fabulous photo. The other commenters are right about that light, it is wonderful. And the beautiful new daffodils give me hope.

The beauty of these daffodils is matched by that golden swath of sunlight in the trees... just lovely, mon amie!

Is this a shot of the Grand Ecurie? I seem to have seen that and it is on the Avenue of Paris. Beautiful portrait...lucky that the sun chose to accentuate this clump of daffodils (narcissus) that day! Are you also watching Augusta?

Love affairs, spring in the air, daffodils, France - what's not to love? This is very nice with the stripes of yellow light.

Tu eus titré "ho ! ho !" c'eut été le début d'un conte de noël
Les jonquilles se marrient-elles avec les narcisses, I wonder ?

I love spring flowers of all kinds. I should really document all the flower activity down here in Jackson before I leave!

Bob Crowe said...

Signs of spring already. The light in this is lovely.

To answer your question, Domingo has been the general director of the LA Opera for several years. I think he usually sings in one production a year.

That slice of light in the trees is incredible. And the daffodils are such beautiful harbingers of spring.

Hello C,
