Our long established cherry trees have burst into flower this week.

Winter Daffodils

Daffodils! In the middle of January!

Wild Flowers in the Park

Near the bee hotel in Lyon’s parc de la tête d’or is a small section set aside for wild flowers.

La Roseraie

The rose garden (la roseraie) in the Parc de la Tête d’Or has an abundance of flowers at the moment.

A Sunny Sunday

While Graham has been keeping you up-to-date here, I’ve been in something of a hibernation. So, I though it was time I came out of my cosy little corner, and reconnected with the world, if only to share these photos from our walk in the park this afternoon.

Raindrops on Roses

During our holidays, I spent a rainy hour or so reading. Then the sun came out, and this was the view out the window.

A Neighbourly Gesture

Thank you, anonymous neighbour, for sharing your delightful flowers with us.

Spring Flowers in Parc de la Tête d’Or

A short video to capture the spring flowers while they are still in bloom.


Blue sky, sunshine, and flowering daffodils. A perfect weekend for walks in the park.

A Hint of Spring

The first spring bulbs are starting to appear in the Parc de la Tete d’Or.
