Jonquilles et château


Ladies and gentlemen, here they are: the daffs on Avenue de Paris. Right at the end of Avenue de Paris I might add since as you can see, we are very close to the palace! These photos were taken on Easter Monday, glorious sunshine but very cold. See 2012 here, 2011 here, 2010 here and 2009 here.

Mesdames et messieurs, les voici ! Les jonquilles de l'Avenue de Paris, enfin presque du bout de l'avenue puisque nous sommes quasiment au château. Ces photos ont été prises le lundi de Pâques par un temps magnifique, mais très froid. 2012 c'est par ici, 2011 ici, 2010 ici et 2009 par .

Glorious! I love that you've established an annual daffodil photo tradition:) They're looking as good this year as in the past! I hope this means warmer weather is round the bend (we finally got a warm afternoon, though nights remain too cold).

Yes, very close to the palace! Love springy shots. I don't know how I can be nostalgic about some place I've visited only once, but I am!

Michelle said...

So very beautiful! Glad you braved the cold!

Cold, this Spring? Surely you jest ;-) The weatherman is threatening 25C for Tuesday, I'll request they send it your way.

The palace make for an outstanding background. I marvel at the resilience of daffodils.

Beautiful daffodils. I hope it warms up soon.

So nice, Ciel. They sure weren't blooming much up the road in the Netherlands. COLD.

Such delicacy. All I got this week is people beating up each other with pillows.

On sent que le printemps a envie d'arriver, mais que l'hiver lui, ne veut pas lacher prise.Esperons que la bagarre ne dure plus trop longtemps..

So pretty! I can hardly wait to see daffodils here so I can photograph them.

Des fleurs un peu modestes pour ce paysage prestigieux.

The daffs! The daffs!! Yay Spring has sprung. We are wet here. So far the wettest April EVER. The end of March was beautiful sunny and warm and now cold and wet----I feel all shook up! MB

Halcyon said...

I love the signs of spring! Just wish they'd hurry up and start sprouting here. Although I don't think I'm getting any tulips in my garden as the squirrels ate all my bulbs. :(

Loree said...

Our daffodils are long gone :(

VP said...

Still raining here, for once let me envy your weather...
