Beautiful Day for a Walk

A couple of days ago, it rained all day – FINALLY.  With the sun now shining and the moisture from that rain, everything is looking so green and beautiful now.  Amazing that it took until the middle of May before we got the April showers this year.

This morning, I grabbed my camera and took a little stroll on the paths beside the Seine River.

Then I crossed back over the river and headed home, stopping for several minutes to chat with a couple of ladies sitting on one of the benches.

  1. Your post is making me feel a little warmer than I am here in Canberra – its quite a cold day today and have just come back from walking my little dog which was nice but inside its a little cold. Great photos as always Mavis.

  2. Thanks Sue. It is getting a little too warm here now. We jumped right from winter to summer it seems, with temperatures up to 34C today and the forecast is for around 30C for the next several days.
