The South End of Notre Dam

We walked to Norte Dam from our very quaint hotel.
It was pleasant to walk along the river, watching the magnificent Gothic cathedral on the shore, growing closer and larger.

Notre Dam is on a small island in the River Seine.

We did not take the boat tour, but it would have been lovely on a warm, sunny day.

I am a fan of symmetry so these trees called my name.
They were lacy and new.
New buds are gorgeous, aren't they!?

We wait for the tree lined streets to start budding here in Wisconsin.
The green is such a delight of our eyes which have seen their fill of grey and brown over the winter.

A small garden at Notre Dam.
Orderly and pretty.

"I see you!"

April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.
~William Shakespeare

Are you planning your garden?
Are your trees budding?

In our neighborhood the daffodils came up and were flattened by 5 inches of snow.
We hope they spring back up.
My tulips are still hiding. They are new, just planted last fall.
I hope they survived our spring storm.

Encourage one another,
