A French Country Weekend

The living proof that spring is here.

I'm about to go into the garden to cut a huge bouquet of the budding forsythia branches to force them into full bloom inside. Then, off to the nursery to buy more herbs and finally the market.

The weather is so exquisite -- bright, warm, invigorating -- that it's impossible not to be happy today.

I hope it's beautiful in your corner of the world and that you have a wonderful weekend.

A demain mes trés, trés, trés chers amis.

The flowers are gorgeous. (And no pollen?)

Spring is definitely popping up in my corner of the world. It's always energizing and sooooo welcome.

Enjoy your weekend!

It it lovely to my warped way of thinking. It snowed here, on the first day of Spring, and I love it. Spring here is just a state of mind!

Wow - I agree, the yellow forsythia made me gasp. So beautiful. I wonder if it grows in LA?
Have a lovely weekend.

We've had lovely weather here for the past few weeks, and it makes everyone happy. Today's weather is a bit overcast and gloomy, but still warmer than it should be. We'll take it with no complaints.

What a lovely forsythia. Sunny and cheerful and warm.
Hope that the weather stays for your weekend plans.
We finally have some sunshine too and I plan to get out in the garden.
I feel so much lighter when the sun is shining.

It's gorgeous in London too - though we are now officially 'in drought' which is worrying. Enjoy the weekend.

So gorgeous!!
I love the forsythia. It always signals spring to me.
Thanks for the sunny pictures.

It's raining here, in "sunny" California so I'm excited to see the beautiful weather I have waiting for me in France.
Coming for first 2 weeks of April.
Can't wait.

I love forsythia - growing up on a farm we had a massive bush which ran down along the main driveway and it was such a beautiful sight in the early Spring. What made it amusing to me was when I was in NYC one time visiting now-defunct Takashimaya and their 1st floor flower shop was selling forsythia at $10 a stem! I remember running up to my Mom and telling her and we just could not get over it - we found it hysterical and wish we knew how to join on that $$ bandwagon ...unbelievable. It is just too pretty to play with.. I love it in natural form or a cluster of stems in a plain vase.
