Pictures for Pam, Day 100: Romance (Nice France #2)

Pictures for Pam, Day 100: Romance (Nice France #2)
(+1 inset!) (full size is recommended!) :)

WOW!! Can you believe I've been working on this project for 100 days?!! It's been wonderful and I look forward to the next 100! YAY PAM!! :)

With the dreary, muddy, sloppy, and rainy weather, it's hard not to want spring to arrive sooner. I'm really happy that we've been getting all of this rain, but at the same time I'm ready for warm, sunny days!

That being said, I cannot resist posting this picture today! These flowers were growing in a planter outside our Air B & B apartment in Nice, France. It was beautiful, sunny, and warm almost every day of our trip and waking up in Nice with the sun shining in the windows was such a treat.

We'd arrived at the apartment the previous evening so I couldn't wait to grab my camera and take pictures of where we stayed. I stepped out onto the tiny landing that lead to the stairs down to the enclosed courtyard and stopped in my tracks. A planter overflowing with beautiful little pink flowers was positively glowing in the sunshine and I had to stop and stare. I took a bunch of photos before heading down to the courtyard to take a picture of our abode.

I'm including an inset of the tiny landing and front of our apartment. You can see the flowers in one of the planters! Above us lived a Russian couple who were quiet but we could hear them walking around above us with creaky floors to tell us where they were. I really enjoyed the little private courtyard and took many pictures before we left, so I'll share some of those when I get to them! :)

If you would like to read my third post, it's here:

Pam, since it's been raining all day, I looked in your photo stream for rain-related images. I found an outstanding picture of a droplet on pine needles that I really loved!! By the way, I loved reading about where you've travelled, thank you so much for sharing! I have not been to Spain or Hong Kong but those are both on our Bucket List so we'll have to see if we get there at some point! *Sending HUGGGGGGS from southern Oregon* :D

What a lovely apartment and what beautiful flowers. I've noticed in our travels that in most places people are far more interested in gardening, flowers, window boxes, etc., than most people here in the States. Even a small balcony like the one in your inset has a few flowers and plants.

We spent time in Brittany when we lived in the UK - camped there along the coast and had a wonderful time. Put a lot of planning into it and had a long list of things we wanted to see, but let things happen once we arrived and were comfortable. That's usually the way we do things and that was with the kids, so it was even more important not to try to do everything.

I envy you your camera and the lens shown in the previous photo. It is a step above mine, but I keep telling myself that it's the person behind the camera that really matters.

Delicate!! Plenty of pretty!! PIP superb!! The fine lines on the petals, of the focused flower, is the one that made me smile. Yes, bring back the Spring, I need flowers in my outdoor life. What a treat it would be to be around in the Spring surrounded my flowers and sun, watching you too, as you create your shot my dear Pod Sister. You make me happy with your touching comments. Hugs!!!!!!!

What a beautiful photo Janet - I have some of these flowers in my garden, but at the bottom of the garden which I can't manage to reach. The superb little PiP is of a typical old French building. I had to laugh when you described the old couple walking about on the floorboards upstairs - my daughter has exactly the same problem with the elderly lady above them. She, however, scrapes the chairs etc along the floor which is really annoying and she tends to throw the water she uses to clean the floors out the door which then goes down to Mandi's patio - when they complained to her - they just had the "pphft" sort of response and she was good for a couple of weeks, then it started again. She was rather cantankerous and so Mandi did try not to antagonise her. Luckily she's gone back to Istanbul to live with her daughter!!

A lovely macro of the flowers and what an interesting looking B&B you stayed in. I'd think it would have been great, noisy floorboards and all. We're at the stage where you're welcome to the warm sunny days, so we're doing something about it soon. :-)

An awesome main picture Janet! The apartment block seems very typical of that part of France. It looks idyllic....but It doesn't come on its own ;-)

The delicate pink flowers are beautiful. I like the way you have sharply photographed one flower and how the others become more and more blurred.
The house in the inset is beautiful.
