A daily photo blog since 2009
So, an "orangerie" is a fancy home or building? Looks like spring is springing a little bit. I don't think I get the reference to Jane Austen but I don't think I've read any Jane Austen novels.Lois Anne has. But she tires of explaining things to me! ;-))
Ooops! I also wanted to say I love your header!
Me again: Re "If pigs could fly..."The photo is of a painting in a store window in a mall...in the background you see reflections of other stores in the mall. I didn't know how it would turn out, but was very pleased when I saw the result!And your question on Stone Creek: Tim has, in the back of his golf cart, two long "noodles" made of Styrofoam which people use to keep them afloat in the swimming pool.
Oh, I hope this story had a happy ending, and all the lovers ended up in the right arms in this beautiful place.
We are surrounded by greenhouses here where we live, but they are so prosaic compared with an orangerie in a Jane Austen novel.Our weather is warming up, but at least one cold spell is due by the weekend, with low temperatures dipping a good 5 degrees Celsius below normal.Your photo, so hopeful of spring, is very welcome today.-- KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
I do see some green in that photo. Maybe spring is indeed coming. I have always thought the word "printemps" evokes the feeling of spring.
It will be here soon. What a lovely photo.
Oh I don't know what an orangerie is (my American brain thinks of growing oranges :( but it looks very pretty.
"bis" mais ou as tu vu un printemps "first" ;)) mais l'endroit au printemps doit etre magnifique
I like the perspective...you have a good eye. Very much like a florist would see it.
I like the glow of light on the side of the building!
Looks like a lovely place to meet Mr. Darcy! Smiles!
@ Magpie: Mr Darcy will do fine, especially if it's Colin Firth thank you! :-)
Pourquoi ? Tu n'as pas été invitée à la party ?Ou ta robe n'est pas assez belle, tu n'as pas les accessoires ? Tu as honte de ta conversation ou de ta mère qui veut à tout prix marrier ta soeur aînée ?
je vois pas trop le rapport avec les romans de Jane sans doute as tu été trop harcelée par ton collègue
I'm fan of Jane Austen novels! :)I imagine this fence full of flowers!Léia*** You were right, Marina was almost with the singer in the stage! heheheElle a tombé amoureuse pour lui! :)
Ha, I just finished building a small greenhouse for my wife, but it doesn't look anything like this ;-)Nice to see some green.
I am a great admirer of Jane Austen’s novels!
Spring is coming! Nice composition with this scene.
The green leaves are catching my eyes! SPRING!
I am right there in that novel with you. Lovely composition!V
What a lovely detail on the wall! I can see why you have mentioned Jane Austen.
Hi C,Wonderful picture. I too get a notion of Jane Austen... It's beautiful!
Pretty pictures. I am enjoying your little glimpses of spring in Versailles.
Love that novel and this is just delightful... wish I had a castle-like greenhouse comme ça... Where is that Mr. Darcy???Bisous,Genie
Beautiful, soft and very romantic. MB
OH to be in a Jane Austen novel! Lol! I actually just finished a series of books by author Stephanie Barron about the life of Jane Austen. They are all fiction, but she does a MARVELOUS job of capturing what I'm sure Jane was like, and throwing in a murder mystery for the clever Jane to solve, all as I enjoy "living" in Georgian England.
