Printemps in Paris


Printemps is springing everywhere in Paris! 


Just a few blocks from our apartment,
les arbres are blooming all around the Eiffel Tower. 


And little shoots and leaves
are popping out all over. 


As I have been training to walk a half marathon on Whidbey Island next weekend,
I spent even more hours walking Paris than usual.


I took a break and ate a picnic lunch on a bench 
in the Luxembourg Gardens one day
and this was my view...






Everyone who heard where I was in March said the same thing:
'Ah, springtime in Paris!'

She's famous for that. 
And I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

Happy Printemps to you!

Oh Kirsten, you are showing the springtime in Paris I had hoped we would find a couple of years ago. Ours was "Rain in Paris" every day! So I am reliving my holiday as I had hoped it would be through your wonderful images.

Don't think it could be more beautiful than that.
