I love the stack of folding chairs! Spring will be there soon!

EG Wow said...

Looks like spring really is just around the corner!

Magpie said...

The days are getting noticeably longer...soon.

Who will sit in those chairs and under those umbrellas when spring finally arrives in all its glory?

Any signs of spring yet?

Spring is early here. All is green. Nice. Warm. I love Florida.

But then I'm old and cold!

just perfect with that blue umbrella yearning toward warmer days.

It has been a while...chairs and Umbrellas are at the ready, the daffs are flowering, come on people put your coats and scarfs into the cupboard. Lets have springtime.

I think a lot of people are waiting for spring. Here we are getting snow tonight. I always enjoy visiting your blog and remembering my visit to Versailles.

Jack said...

It is right around the corner, Ciel, though much further away in New England. Some spring day, sit outside at a table in the piazza and have a glass of wine for us.

Halcyon said...

Ah yes! A perfect place to do some people watching when the weather gets nice. :)

Like ladies in waiting.

Randy said...

Got to have a little color in your day! It was warm yesterday and now it's snowing. Hopefully it will be gone by morning.

les parasols sont ready, le soleil arrive , mais il fait encore froid pour boire le café du matin en terrasse ;))
J'aime cette lumiere hivernale (surement le matin non ?)

This amuses me, everything closed up, waiting for spring to arrive so that life begins anew at the local cafe...very funny to contemplate! ...a bit like a turtle who has gone inside...

va falloir mettre un slip damart pour s'installer en terrasse

Par curiosité, j'ai cherché qui était ce Nepveu, et j'ai découvert, sur le site du ministère de la culture, que c'était un architecte du XIX° qui avait travaillé à la restauration du château de Versailles. Merci du renseignement, Monsieur Mitterand.

@ Bergson: j'imagine ta collection de slips Damart... MDR.

Not long to wait now!:)

Cezar and Léia said...

Ahhh Spring!
I'm here just reading "La sieste assassinée"by Philippe Delerm,and thinking about a coffee with friends from French school,and hopping the weather can be cool, with lots of sun, to allow us to sit outside and enjoy a nice chat!
Ahhh Spring!
Léia ;)

I see even your chairs are duly chained to the pole.

Woody said...

Seeing umbrella's would be a nice sign of Spring.

Diane said...

Aren't we all! Its tantalisingly close. xx

Small City Scenes said...

That is the way I feel--LOL MB

Francisca said...

Now that I am in a colder climate (with my thin blood) I join those wishing the arrival of spring! [I can't believe France doesn't celebrate Int'l Women's Day!]

Loree said...

I think that at this point, we are all waiting for spring ;)

Becky said...

It won't be long, will it?
