Bourgeons

Before VDP took a break, on Easter Monday to be precise, I took a walk in Versailles forest just above Saint-Louis neighbourhood. What you see here are signs of spring in the foreground (in the meantime most of the trees are now green), Saint-Louis cathedral on the right, and the palace chapel looming above the palace in the background! Tomorrow, some better views when I finally got to a hole in the trees!

Avant les vacances de VDP, le lundi de Pâques pour être précise, je me suis promenée dans la forêt domaniale de Versailles au-dessus du quartier Saint-Louis. Ce que vous voyez ici au premier plan, ce sont des bourgeons, signes de printemps (depuis ils ont éclos) ! Au second plan à droite, la cathédrale Saint-Louis et derrière, la chapelle royale qui surplombe le château. De meilleures vues demain puisque j'ai fini par trouver un trou dans les arbres !

Les branches font un graffiti sur le paysage.

C'est joli quand on ne voit que les toits. La modernité est gommée, il ne reste que la beauté de l'architecture .

J'aime beaucoup ces vues ou l'on a un appercu de l'ensemble de la ville. On peut mettre les pieces du puzzle ensuite en place.

That is interesting. I remember the area as being relatively flat. What a great view even between the branches!

Imagine this scene in a week or so Ciel, you won't be able to find a space when all those buds burst open, looking forward to seeing that :) Happy weekend to you.

It is a lovely view. Something we--your readers--don't generally see.

got the e-mail. I feel like slitting someones throat. MB

You framed this picture nicely through the branches...
