Carousels . Accordions &
La Vie En Rose
IF la Vie En Rose is playing in your head right now .. then that's a good thing!! As that's what I'm listening to on one of those little wind up music boxes I brought home from Paris. And that's what I'm hearing when I think of Montmartre... If you can find the quiet amongst the crowds, then you'll also find the magic. The story book Montmartre where the imagined is more tangible than the reality..
Lucky for me I found some quiet moments as I strolled along the alleyways.. recovering from my climb to the top of Sacre Coeur [see here]. Relax with a cafe creme.. or perhaps a gelati.. as you watch the carousel delight the children and the child within.. whilst listening to the bittersweet tones of a piano accordion somewhere in the distance.
I'm in a green mood as we are finally having the perfect spring day!! Now that it is actually summer!! .. Spring saw the weather in Sydney fluctuate between 38c heat waves and cold damp days of 18c... Mix in a bit of torrential rain and that's what we've been experiencing.. They predict we are in for a hot and steamy summer... For now I'll just enjoy this perfect spring like weather and hope it continues this way for a bit.
Have A Great Weekend
And a big thanks to all who visit and comment!!
Each and everyone appreciated!!
