Paris, 12th District… Very pretty but not exactly ‘walking friendly’

"Look! The water is frozen." ... "Do you think we can walk on it?"   Yikes!Bellanda ®

“Look! The water is frozen.” … “Do you think we can walk on it?” … “Well, the snow isn’t sinking, so I think so.”    Me, “NO!”    Yikes!

  1. Great pictures, as always ! Love the last one. With your creative mind, that one will probably be on greeting cards in the near future ! Thanks for sharing your love of winter 🙂

  2. The weatherman also called for snow out our way but only rain and sleet came through. Wow, snow in March in Paris? The weather is certainly finicky!

    • Hello Libby,

      Rain & sleet… now, that doesn’t sound like much fun to me! Hope you were able to stay inside with a cup of warm tea in hand.

      Yes, strange weather indeed. I was just looking at my balcony flower pots, wondering if it was too early to start shopping around for plants. Apparently, I got my answer! lol

      Thank you for stopping by my blog and for taking the time to write. 🙂

  3. Love the photos, You have a talent for bringing us your into pictures. Thank you for sharing Paris as I have never seen it. Snow….Paris ….those two words never registered in my mine before………

    • Thank you for your kind words, Josie. I am glad that my photos pleased you. I totally agree with you about not normally associating Paris and snow… but somehow when the two mix together, it’s magical. 🙂

      Thank you for your continued support and for your continued participation on my blog. It makes all the effort of writing and posting worth it when people take part in the experience. 🙂

    • Hello Spencer,
      It is lovely to see you here on my blog! Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m glad that you liked the photos. Paris, covered in snow, is something so beautiful and rare that it needs to be shared with others.
      Thank you for visiting my blog and for taking the time to leave a comment.
      Best wishes to you and your family.

    • Thank you, Chuck. Yes, Christmas in Paris can indeed be a beautiful time to visit. Hopefully, you will be back for another visit in the near future. 🙂 It’s nice to have you here with me on my blogging journey.
      Best wishes,
      Bellanda

  4. Yup, that’s definitely winter snow there… we had a lot here as well. Friday would’ve been more fitting for the X-mas music in the mall from the other day 😉 And then, both yesterday and today it was all sunny! Weird weather is weird.

    Such beautiful photos, Bellanda, snow in March or not.

    PS: your kids are precious, that’s one great dialogue to add with the photo *laughing*

    • Thank you… they were so excited to see ‘real’ snow twice in one year (something they don’t usually get to see).
      Yes, let’s hope that things will start warming up for both of us. 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by… it is always a pleasure to have you participate in my blogging journey.

      Best wishes to you.
