N'Importe Quoi Photo of the Week

They might be small, but the spring flowers are starting to poke their way up through the still cold soil and these miniature tulips are already blooming on the Place d'Italie.

Some bulbs peeking through on the other side, one more day of this gorgeous sun should do it! Below, the daffodils brighten up the hazy morning at the Jardins du Palais Royal (and the fountain is operating again).

Hi Heather - what a lovely blog! I found you via Carol at Paris Breakfasts and will definitely stop back often.

I love Paris - springtime or not! In addition to playing the Irish harp, I'm also writing a book about some Parisian experiences I've had.
