Wednesday Doorway: les géraniums de plein hiver

Geraniums in full bloom. The star on the door tells you this was around Christmas. Talk about global warming, it is way too warm. Seen in Saint-Louis neighbourhood.

L'étoile sur la porte, c'est de la déco de Noël et les géraniums fleurissent allègrement dans le quartier Saint-Louis. Réchauffement planétaire ? Vous ne trouvez pas qu'il fait un peu chaud pour un mois de janvier ?

Very pretty to see so many geraniums at this time of year..Like the doorway also.

Schön !


Mit ca. 8C eher kalt hier. Einen guten Mittwoch dir.

Regina K said...

Wow that is warm. Sure wish I could have my geraniums outside inside of hibernating in my basement.

Theanne said...

Wish the plants on my patio were that green, with colorful blooms! I thought it had finally turned cold here but no, it was 81 degrees today!

Lowell said...

One would think this photo was taken in mid-summer. You don't normally have blooming geraniums in December, right?

I like the door a lot along with the window ... Very "homey."

Without the snow flake, I'd have never guessed Winter! I like the color of the wood, it contrasts nicely with the ironwork.

The unusual warmth seems to be affecting lots of the Northern Hemisphere this winter but not all of it. There are a few places whose climate is pleasant all year. Victoria, BC, has an annual contest for the home that has the most roses blooming on Christmas Day.

I love geraniums. I can't believe it's so warm there.

Wht do i feel that te door is a little bit short on the width !

Jack said...

Might as well enjoy the geraniums as long as you can, Ciel! It will eventually get cold, and you won't like that.

@ Wong: yes! Funny you noticed!

@ Jack: I would love some real cold.

La porte est étroite, c'est peut-être l'entrée du paradis.

joo said...

I was sure it was in summer! Lol, such a weather is a bit bizarre at this time of year!
Have a nice day:)

Yes, you will not believe how warm it has been here this winter... we have spring flowers blooming in our yard. It is crazy! What is going on??? I like the skinny door for doorway Wednesday, it has charm.

VP said...

Warm now? I remember last July: it was cold!

Gosh that is unusual Ciel, I know my geraniums grow much better when it's really hot! What do you call 'too warm'? Lovely picture, I like the shoes taken off at the front door.

It does look like the airport is close to the city Ciel, but I think it's a bit of an optical illusion here, the distance is much further than it seems. We do have a lot of serious fires here in summer, the heat and the wind are too extreme sometimes, unfortunately a very high percentage are actually deliberately lit. I heard that this year the authorities are going to be keeping a very close eye on known arsonists, hopefully that will help, some of the fires we had last summer were disastrous.

"Wabbit" food for French women? You're so funny. Do French women eat wabbit food in order to keep their slim figures?

Kaori said...

Wish it would warm its way here! Beautiful plants!

Sharon said...

What a pleasing doorway!

Malyss said...

On est tous des frustrés de l'hiver, j'ai l'impression.. Tres accueillante, cette maison!

Bergson said...

t'inquiète pas le gel arrive samedi

Tammie Lee said...

wonderful image, i love the door and the snowflake looking detail. global warming or airstreams in different places, moving the storms to new places. i have not been able to xc ski this year! just a couple inches of snow in my woods. xo

Birdman said...

Is that a snowflake? We're getting a couple zillion more tonight.

Becky said...

Before reading your commentary I saw the picture and thought, "Wow, that looks like spring!" It's been warmer than usual over here, too. Light jackets at Christmas. Weird. Looking forward to more green shots like this as we move closer to March and April!

Very pretty little door, it seems kind of narrow; always make me think of how hard it would be to move furniture in and out. We are having a warm winter too.

JM said...

Lovely!

EG Wow said...

It's very pretty to see geraniums so late in the year but global warming is very scary!

Francisca said...

Ouch! Not the season for geraniums!
