Monday is 'Missing Paris Day'~Chartre Cathedral

While spring rain is presently melting my enthusiasm here in the Pacific NW, memories of France in the spring keep my fire delightfully crackling away.

These were taken in May a couple of springs ago at one of our favorites: Chartres Cathedral just a short drive or trainride out of Paris. Enjoy!




Throughout and between the maze of Mays, we all need a little rejuvenating.


Alors, moi,
...while fighting a wee sore throat this wet day of May...

I plan on cozying up to the fire with Andrea Lee's intriguing collection of short stories, "Interesting Women". Some fine writing. Happy Spring to all of you lovely and interesting women (and men of course)!

Oh, I am alternately gasping and sighing. Such lovely, lovely photos. The wisteria. Oh, the wisteria.

Thanks g. and Relyn,
The wisteria makes me nostalgic. Glad I could share it so others could enjoy it.

Gorgeous shots and I can't help but say that the wisteria was my pick - sublime. xv

I sigh wistfully at the wisteria! This is just beyond spectacular. Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks Vicki and Muse...something about wisteria next to an ancient cathedral involves sighing. So appreciate your comments!
