Paris vines - rouge



When the rouge turns to marron, can spring be far behind?

Counting the days until spring arrives in Paris, and then...
 moi aussi!

We have the same vine on the front of our house here. It turns yellow to red in autumn- the depth of colour depends on the temperature of the season. I would love to have it on MFF, but my husband is objecting on the grounds that it has a tendency to grow quickly and cause work damage and work.
Bon weekend

oh, my. the thumbnail looked as if some violence had happened there. i'm so glad i trusted you and opened up the image to reveal this red-creeper rather than what i feared i might find.

Spring has been in Paris all week and glorious, but seems to have gone away again now. Hopefully it will be back by the time you arrive!

Harriet said...

I'm a sucker for a vine with red leaves...well leaves of any color, really. Spring has arrived in Charleston, SC. Hope you find the same in France! Let the countdown begin!

Spring has come to Indy, too! It's much warmer than usual and many of us are wondering how we're going to pay for it later in the season, but for now, it's great. The magnolia and dogwood trees are blooming, the hibiscus and crocus have sprouted, and birds are all around calling for a mate. Woo hoo!

You really have an eye for detail. I check the weather in Paris everyday on my iPhone. :)

Riet said...

Spring is in the air, almost there.

Vreni said...

Oh, Paris in spring is sooo beautiful. You surely will enjoy your stay!

Jeanne said...

Mother Nature sure does enable us to step back and simply enjoy her offerings. How lovely and what a find:-)

TheChieftess said...

We're having spring snow...I miss the spring flowers!!!

Kris said...

Beautiful image Genie. I love the rouge color and the way it drapes across the wall.

Janey and Co. said...

Spring is here in south Texas...and hopefully will arrive Paris when you do!

Jack said...

A nice little detail, Genie. I hope your upcoming trip to Paris exceeds all expectations.

Jeanne, I think you are right and the vines are in their cycle of living as they move from the reds of autumn and winter and give us hope for a spring to come.

Nicola, thank you for ordering some spring weather for my arrival!

Mary Ann, I wish that you and Alie could join me again and Marie too. That seems forever ago!

Elizabeth, I think that you should find a wall or fence away from the house and just let it run wild. I'll come and take photos in the fall when the leaves are all red!

Bises,
Genie

Oh you are so lucky Genie, spring in Paris is parfait!!

Peter Olson said...

Spring is here! ... and will be even "official" when you soon arrive! Welcome back! :-)

Louise said...

The starkness of the red leaves is just beautiful. I'm looking forward to your trip too, so I can revisit Paris vicariously.
