off the stem

The story of Paris in April (especially with global warming making it nice and sunny) is really a story of flowers, or fleurs, as I like to call them.  It's off the chain, or should I say off the stem?

It's enough to make me almost like tulips. The weather in California is not their thing. One freaking day of bloom and then it's just a stick with leaves. They look lovely in Paris. I forgive them for existing. Kind of.

yeah, i've never been that hot on tuplips either, or daffodils, OR irises (i know, i'm blowing your mind), but they are real artists with them.

Stunning in photos...I can only imagine what it's like in person. I feel my Huell Howser impression busting out with his quote about daffodils. Always available by request.

Is the post about the place where the naked ladies dance? The one with the whole in the wall, where apparently, you can see it all?

No, that place was closed the day we went! Most of my pictures are just up-skirt shots from the Metro.

I heard that the men don't care cuz they're wearing underwear.

discussion: is there really a secret blog, and if so, where is it?

One of the things that used to drive me crazy about our french friends was how cool their jobs always were (some of them might have actually been mundane, but they seemed interesting in the translation). Anyway, one of them, Helene, her job was as a landscape architect for the public gardens of Paris. Judging by the looks of these flowering gardens, that's a pretty high pressure job!!

You should have sunk all your money into the tulips to corner the market. It works every time. I did the same cornering the nickel industry which is why I was able to retire so early.
