Cuvée 2016

Daffodils jonquilles avenue de Paris à Versailles
The 2016 avenue daffs... Here on Avenue de Paris (but there are loads on the other avenues too). These pictures were taken on 5 March after snow fell in the morning. They've been blooming forever, we've had what is now officially the warmest winter on record (since 1900)... To see the avenue daffodils shots since 2009, click here and scroll down! And if you're wondering what that contraption is, click here!

Ces photos ont été prises avenue de Paris le 5 mars après un peu de neige matinale, ça fait déjà un bout de temps que les jonquilles sont en fleurs. Forcément puisque nous sortons doucement de ce qui fut l'hiver le plus chaud jamais enregistré depuis 1900. Pour voir les photos des jonquilles sur les avenues versaillaises des années précédentes depuis 2009, cliquez ici et utilisez la barre de défilement !

What a gorgeous sight they are, too! Daffs will be elusive here until May.

Lovely Ciel, I'll bet the Avenue de Paris looks beautiful helped by this gorgeous display. We have have masses of 'daff's' over here as well they seem to have been around since Christmas...

Streets paved with gold.

We have snow drops out but just the tips of the daffodils coming up so far although it was 19.5˚C here today which is very warm for us. Climate change is happening for sure!

So lovely! Ours are just now starting to bloom.

Such pretty daffodils -- love that brilliant yellow.

Yup, my heart leaps up when I behold a field of daffodils!

Beautiful. The sun filtering through the bright petals makes the daffodils even more alluring. Spring is so refreshing.

This is so pretty. I clicked on to all the pictures and the place without the Daffodils. What a huge difference!
Beautiful images and a very nice place on the planet. Enjoy spring.

That is looking very spring-like! I do love seeing daffodils and we don't see many (if any) in Arizona.

Gorgeous flowers, spring is around the corner!

It looks like it's been the warmest winter everywhere. Hope summer won't be too harsh. The daffodils are lovely, as always.

The daffodils are beautiful.

You have warmed my heart with these photos. We've been very warm as well (it was 27C today!), but nothing blooming yet.

Very pretty! My daffodils are not doing so well this year for some reason.
