Did you know, you’re not allowed to sit on the grass in certain Paris parks?
This small one behind my apartment is no Jardin du Luxembourg, but you’re not supposed to sit on certain sections here, either.
I have to admit, I often disregard the rule.
I have been told to climb down from the tiny hill where I took this picture. Never a good feeling to be scolded – especially in French! But I risk it just to have this little pocket of goodness to myself for awhile. (Also, don’t you just want to reach out and grab that dandelion puff to make a wish?)
What’s to say about April in Paris that hasn’t already been said?
Don’t know, but we’ve been having an awesome run here: sun! blue skies! warm temperatures!
In fact, out of the five I’ve experienced, this has to be the best April (weather-wise) I’ve seen. A spring this nice even makes the annoyances of living here less annoying. (Yes, I’ve had another run-in with La Poste! Arg!)
Today, the sky has returned to the more familiar cloudy mix. So I just wanted to give thanks now for the happy spring we’ve had recently. Counting my blessings (or more aptly, naming my blessings) is an important theme for me this year.
Ah, Ella and Louis. Just thought I’d throw that song in there, as it’s a great one. Listening to that actually makes me nostalgic for April in Paris – and I’m already here! It makes me feel classy just hearing it. Doesn’t really feel like my life or anything, but hey, it’s good for dreaming.
How’s spring treating you? Are you feeling gratitude about anything in particular?
For some reason I liked seeing all of these flowers…in front of the flowers of a flower shop. (Can there ever be a) flower overload? (No!)
