Glycines/street name series II


The wisteria is rather late this year due to the dreary, grey, windy, rainy and a bit (undestatement) on the coldish side weather we've been having. Seen here in Porchefontaine neighbourhood! Pierre Corneille (1606-1684) was one of the three greatest French dramatists, along with Molière and Racine.

Les glycines sont un peu en retard cette année avec ce temps moche, venteux, pluvieux et frais que nous avons eu. Vues ici à Porchefontaine. Voir le nom de la rue m'a donné envie de relire "le Cid" !

Lovely series this, Ciel. I like to see streets and how people actually live. I have been known to watch the TdF purely for this purpose.

I was at a garden center that had a pergola that must have been 10M tall with wisteria woven through the roof, it was really cool.

I feel your weather pain, although our hasn't been as bad as yours. It was 7C this morning and we're expecting 30C later this week.

C'est toujours beau, des glycines au dessus d'une porte , ça donne un charme fou!
Nom de rue ou pas , je relierai pas le Cid pour tout l'or du monde! :o)
