Ma Petite Cour


Humor me.  This time last year, I was in my lovely little flat in the Marais. I found this photograh that I took from my kitchen window one morning.  Wonderful memories of a special time in Paris.

Note: I understand the temps in Paris are more like Alabama weather right now. I'm thankful I'm not experiencing this with the tiny fan and windows in this apartement. This Alabama girl would need some real AC for the heat.

I think it's lovely, photos are a wonderful reminder of our personal diaries. Yes it is indeed hot in Europe and AC is a must.

I'll humour you anytime Virginia, if I get to see lovely images like this. I didn't get a chance to comment yesterday, but your 'petit garcon' is tres, tres adorable!!

... at least, I believe that the sun didn't reach there! Yes, it's hot here, but as usual a bit of thunder and some cooler days are expected!

A lovely patch of green out there! Did you enjoy a little vino blanco there too?

Lovely courtyard -- and a cute little blue door, too! Last year it was downright chilly in Paris ... This year it's sweltering ... Glad I was there last June!

I love a kitchen with a window...love it even more if it's in Paris. I bet there is another trip on your horizon...

It was a cute little blue door. Behind it the recycling bins and some brooms! :)

Peter, actually it did get some sun as I recall but I think we were lucky it was cool that week!

I'm hoping it cools down...I'm on my way to Paris this weekend...but I'll take whatever she gives me...

love the blue on that door.

I'll bet it's steamy in that pretty little courtyard today!
You'd have to go hang out in the lobby of some big luxury hotel, one with AC. :~}

What a beautiful photo, Miss Virginia!

I´ve been to Paris many times, but only once in summertime. Never again!

This South American girl totally suscribes to your predicament.

Monday was hot, but yesterday was boiling. Strangely, it's quite cool in the apartment.

Is the flat you stay in in Paris available for rent?
