springtime in Toulouse aka “la ville rose-brique”…:-)

Printemps… – Victor Hugo

Voici donc les longs jours, lumière, amour, délire!
Voici le printemps! mars, avril au doux sourire,
Mai fleuri, juin brûlant, tous les beaux mois amis!
Les peupliers, au bord des fleuves endormis,
Se courbent mollement comme de grandes palmes;
L’oiseau palpite au fond des bois tièdes et calmes;
* * *
2h-delightful stroll from the Capitole(City Hall) to the banks of the Garonne river… 🙂

Il semble que tout rit, et que les arbres verts
Sont joyeux d’être ensemble et se disent des vers.
Le jour naît couronné d’une aube fraîche et tendre;
Le soir est plein d’amour; la nuit, on croit entendre,
A travers l’ombre immense et sous le ciel béni,
Quelque chose d’heureux chanter dans l’infini.
* * *
have a cheerful spring season, folks! 🙂

  6. Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the Springtime. But it seems that Toulouse may be finer still… lovely pictures – isn’t it just so INVIGORATING this new Spring!

    • yes, you’re right about springtime, but which Carolina – North or South?… 🙂

      • I’ll let you know when I’ve walked the Appalachian Trail – it goes through both! I was playing with the lyrics of an old song which really goes nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning but Springtime seemed to fit as nothing seems finer than Springtime now that she is bursting forth in her freshest regalia! 🙂
