...tax preparation. Whew! Done. As I sorted through stacks and files and wore my favorite pencil down to a nub doing calculations, I did think of you all! Those calculations are all now in the lap of my accountant and I can tackle the French taxes...does it never end?!
Let's start here:
Remember a handful of weeks ago when I posted a shot and said, "Watch those trees..."? And then just a week or so later, there was this shot:
Well, take a look at it now!
Our spirits, frozen by a long winter, get a lift when the leaves pop out on the plane trees along Cours Mirabeau. Better than any anti-depressant on the market (okay...that may be an overstatement. But you get the idea...), the energy being emitted as those leaves push their way into the world is palpable...if not contagious...at least for me. The energy of a world being reborn.
In coming days, this elegant canopy will be in full splendor and ready to shade us during the heat of summer. I wanted you to enjoy it along with me so I brought you along on my walk last evening. Above, we're at the top of cours Mirabeau, taking the long view down toward the fountain at La Rotonde.
Then we wandered through the brocante fair. Lined up on the left-hand side of this grand passage, a few dozen antique vendors spread their wares on a regular basis. I find their goods a bit overpriced but their vignettes charming. I also find them all to be quite good-natured about allowing me to shoot photos.
There is something about forks that always draws me. Wonder what that's about? (*wink, wink.*)
I'll share more of that brocante fair through the week so stop in during the days ahead to see what else you enjoyed!
