 Puisque mai tout en fleurs dans les prés nous réclame....
The weather is not exactly warm and sunny around here, but the flowers are blooming...
so I am trying not to complain about the weather like all the Parisians do, and just appreciate the green and the flowers!
 I gave my balcony a make-over  (all I need now is some patio chairs and a table) and it makes me so happy to go out and see my little plants!
A completely unrelated photo of me, Céline and Ariane at the Bellevilloise last night.

Le Parc de Bagatelle

 The Parc de Bagatelle is an extravagantly lovely park in the Bois de Boulogne. 
 It has an incredible rose garden, but on my last visit the roses weren't blooming yet. 
But the tulips were at their peak.

 And of course, the cherry blossoms, lilacs and other flowering trees that are my favorite part of spring!
These beautiful shots of a white peacock were taken by my friend Ariane, pictured below.
