Sapins de Noël à Nemours


Well would you look....here we are at the Palais Royal again!!  Last year these wonderful evergreens were lined up along the arcade at the Palais Royal and at the Café le Nemours on Place Colette.  I don't know about you, but after all the glitz and glitter everywhere else in Paris ( and the U.S.), I found these simple green trees a nice respite. A bit too chilly to sit outside, but I plan to have a sip here in janvier.

Je pense que ces sapins n'étaient pas encore décorés! J'aime bien quand ils sont illuminés!

In November, I visited the Palais Royale for the first time! It was a gorgeous morning, one of the few sunny days during our trip.

Or maybe they didn't want to compete with the colorful metro stop nearby. Wish I could join you for that sip!

I would love to be there right now having a sip (as you put it) or two.

The lighting here is delightful.

Since you mentioned Nemours and it reminded me of my childhood, I thought you'd find this interesting: http://www.thebrandywine.com/attractions/nemours.html

I think the trees will give a refreshing view after those glittering lights ...

Nemours, as in du Pont de Nemours, who own half the state of Delaware... Nemours is just a short drive south of Paris. I spent a night there once, drove across the bridge a few times, le pont, and someone tried to steal our rental car at a hotel in Nemours, the night before we were flying back to the US, had to do a police report in the morning and almost missed our flight... memories of Nemours.

So did you go in there for a drink ?

And are things falling into place for another winter trip ? Hope all is well...

Those trees are amazing! I've only encountered a handful of REAL christmas trees; and none of them have been so wide and full.
