Les jonquilles

Well... A little over two weeks ago the first bright yellow pretties appeared on Avenue de Paris. Last Saturday, they were definitely out. VDP still thinks it's a bit too early... To see the avenue daffs since 2009, click here! Oh, and that's the palace in the first two shots of course.

Eh bien... Il y a un peu plus de deux semaines, les premières petites têtes jaunes faisaient leur apparition sur l'avenue de Paris. Samedi dernier, elles étaient bien plus nombreuses. VDP pense que c'est vraiment trop tôt... Pour voir les jonquilles de l'avenue depuis 2009, cliquez ici.

Wow! We're just getting our first good stretch of above freezing temps without snow in the forecast. But surely the daffodils can't be far behind now.

I love, love that warm yellow and the promise it holds!! Lovely captures for the day, Ciel! Thanks for brightening this GRAY/WET afternoon!!!

William Kendall said...

They're lovely, Ciel!

It'll be awhile before we see them here!

RedPat said...

I'm green with envy! We got more snow this morning.

LONDONLULU said...

Oh how I long to see little yellow pretties here too! We too got more snow early today (OK, cocoa and a roaring fire aren't bad, so long as spring is near:)

When I lived up north, the first appearances of crocuses made me smile and the first appearances of jonquils/daffodils/narcissus med me grin from ear to ear.

Guten Tag. Wie geht es Ihnen?

Now I have exhausted the Deutsch I can remember from high school. Although I can still sing Stille Nacht and O Tannenbaum.

Now that would make for a cheerful day.

So soon? We have nothing, but your winter has been much warmer.

Dave said...

Lets hope they last until St. Davids day. Should be a win for France on Friday!

Super, tu peux comparer et nous on peut admirer...

I have to wander what is going to happen to all our budding and blossoming friends when the cold weather arrives... if it ever does.

A 'golden' carpet, very cheering!

J'adore the jonquils Ciel.. the Palace in the background is the icing on the cake for this shot.

You are so fortunate to be living in such a beautiful place. Love all the pics but the first two with the palace are super nice and so evocative of what a treasure the palace is. Avenue de Paris is one of a kind! How can it be too early for yellow daffs?

je cherchais les têtes jaunes dans les passants :-)

Tanya Breese said...

You lift my spirits a bit this morning.

Mid-February may effectively be a bit too early: I see a lot of winter clothes still around...

Loree said...

It's crazy isn't it? Over here I think that the tip of the wheat is started to turn golden. I might be mistaken but I don't think so. Our winter, if we can call it that, has been too short.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Thanks for the shot of Spring, it's much needed.

We still have 30cm of snow covering the ground!!

Oh my! That does seem a bit early! We had freezing rain, then snow this past Friday/Saturday and again Monday. Now today, Thursday, we are to reach 60 degrees F! No doubt there will be severe storms involved. Well, enjoy those beautiful flowers for me. :-)
