Les arbres de printemps



Montmartre


If you see this tree in the winter, 
you would not even take a second glance.  


In spring, it steals the show.



Place Jean-Baptiste Clément
75018, Paris

It's gorgeous! I can see what you mean though -- the difference in winter and spring has never ceased to amaze me! Talk about rebirth!!

The tree is gorgeous, yet all I could do was fixate on the top apartment with a sun room, on the top floor of the building. Some people have all the luck! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

It really is lovely.

I've seen that tree, in July, and you are correct, except for he fact that I was seeking shade, I would not have noticed that tree, but today? Gorgeous

Heureusement qu'en ce moment il nous reste des arbres comme celui-ci à admirer autrement on se croirait encore en plein hiver !...
Excellente photo.
Gros bisous

It's bursting with Spring Genie. A wonderful time of year for photography.

Vraiment! It is just absolutely gorgeous. I also really like the building in the background. Aaah, April in Paris!!!

And what wonderful views those folks have that live in the apartments behind.

Magnificent. My son came home from France on Sunday. As he was showing me his photos, he said, I just took these because they looked French and I knew you'd want them. This photo is so French it makes me catch my breath...

I think I know this house. And I was there before the blossoms bloomed and yes -- not a second glance. But oh! How stunning!

I saw one of those trees in Paris when it was not quite winter but not yet spring. It didn't look quite as gorgeous as this one but it was already pretty enough.

Stunning Springtime! :)

Alexa said...

Gorgeous shot, Genie! I'm with French Girl—and I'd take that top-floor apt. with or without the beautiful-in-springtime tree.

Starman said...

Imagine the view from those top apartments!

Beaute dans mon ancient quartier....

Beautiful tree! I just came back from Berlin where it was overcast, rainy and cold. The trees look still like in winter...

J'aaimerais bien avoir un petit atelier d'artiste à cet endroit que je connais bien ou dans une rue voisine loin de la foule ...
