Paris Spring Knows No Calendar-January Flowers

Spring flowers-Jardin des Plantes

While out for a power walk Jardin des Plantes on the Left Bank, my husband, Erik, brought back some tiny spring flowers blooming on this relatively warm day in  January. Each had an individual strong scent.

The merle was out this evening singing beautifully. Its tones, ranges and words are so varied. It is as if the bird is putting codes into the atmosphere for future reference. The code could be either its identity or an attempt to identify its spot on the chimney spout. The sky was blue without a cloud today.

This Web site and and its blog articles are for travelers to Paris who are looking for advice from someone who lives in Paris. These tips are "for Parisians at heart". Many people would like to visit, some can and some cannot - so I will help you enjoy a glimpse of the city and its surroundings. This project has been ongoing since 2002. Prior to living in Paris (since 1992) my European history a few decades ago with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was after graduation from the University of Florida (where I met Erik): traveling around Europe and UK with my friend, Margie, hitchhiking around and working in Ireland. After living and working as a journalist in Sweden for four years, traveling on boats, the Trans-Siberian Railway, local trains and planes took Erik and I around the world. In 1990 for American Airlines I began working as a flight attendant, based in Chicago. We moved to Paris, France in 1992 where I commuted between Paris and Chicago for my flight attendant/stewardess job. Finally my inner voice said "Stop!" and I left American Airlines after 20 years. Now that is over and I am back working as a journalist and photographer full time on Colleensparis.com - My videos are posted on YouTube on the colleensparis youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/colleensparis and I am active in Toastmasters. Enjoy!
