Automne dans le Marais


These photographs were taken almost exactly a year ago in le Marais district of Paris. I just love the colors of this "Virginia creeper" and the fallen leaves almost as much as I loved walking the streets and photographing this old and lovely part of Paris.

Oh, I can see why you're in love with this, Virginia. How spectacular! {And don't the colours match your blog font colours nicely.} Ooh, my wv is dapper!

What a beautiful building! Do you remember in which street is it?
Just a little thing: in French, we would say "Automne dans le Marais" (or "Automne au Marais" but it does not sound great). Sorry, French is so hard...

I love the Matais. I don't think they would be called Virginia creepers inn Paris, but there are a lot of them there.

Virginia said...

Starman,
That's what Jilly in Monte Carlo DP called it. Here we call it Boston Ivy. Who knew!

Alice,

It's just too beautiful for words. I love that you love Paris so much, you've made such a difference in my life.

Virginia said...

Oh Paula, now don't you make me get all weepy. I do love Paris so, and I love doing this blog so much. It's like a little trip back each day when I pour over my photos and choose one or twofor all of you. I can't bear the thought of running out and having to stop. Well actually I have so many that I can run "marginals" for quite a while. A trip might be in my winter plans. I can't stop. I"m besotted.

I love autumn colors -- both photos are great, but that top one is definitely worthy of some award.

Ahhh, Parthenocissus vitacea! This was the hardest latin name I had to memorize in 9th grade Biology and I never forgot it because it was so hard to get in my brain in the first place!
