Alphabet-Thursday. P is for Printemps

Can you believe it?
This is my 400th post!
I'd like to say a great big thank you to all my followers 
for supporting me since I began blogging
 almost four years ago. 
What a great time I've had, sharing my life with you and learning about yours.

Here's to the next 400!

Here in Normandy it's Printemps, again!

I'm talking about this Printemps.................

When spring takes centre stage to announce
 "All right, Mr DeMille, I'm ready for my close up".

The weather on Tuesday was lovely.
 Although still chilly we enjoyed blue skies and sunshine.
Everywhere I looked in the garden spring was bursting out all over,
to the soundtrack of a chain saw!

S the G is back!

  1. Welcome to Printemps! If it has arrived chez vous, can it be too far behind for us?

  2. I agree with Pondside...I hope our spring is not too far off. I am going to go out and investigate the garden today. It is 60 degrees!! I am really loving it. Sounds like you will have a lot going on in your garden as well. Printemps...I love the sound of that!


  3. Congratulations on the 400 Maggie. I am happy to be your follower. Your garden says indeed printemps, beautiful and in a short time it will be hard work for you.
    We had two nice days but today it has been raining very hard most of the day. They say it will be better by tomorrow so I will keep
    my fingers crossed.
    Have a nice week

  4. Congratulations on your 400th post. What an achievement .
    Daffodils are just popping their heads out here and evenings are getting lighter.oh printemp is on it's way.

  5. What a wonderful post. You've got me in a mood to go work in the garden now. Hopefully spring will soon find me as well.

  6. Congrats on your 400th post. That sure is an accomplishment. I'm ready for spring to arrive. Enjoy your garden as it starts to bloom.

  14. Beautiful pictures. It's spring here too! All the azaleas are blooming early this year.

  15. Wow. 400 posts? Congratulations.

  16. Printemps - the season of hope. It seems so slow to come here. Lovely daffodils you have.

    Congratulations on 400 posts!

  17. Congratulations on your 400th post!! I am sure like me you are glad of the sunny days rather than the dull ones. We have camellias, daffs and crocus in flower. Can see the tulips shooting through.

    love to you both, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

  18. Bella Primavera! Congratulations on your 400th post, I have no idea how many I have written so now I am off to find out. :)

  19. 400 posts is quite an accomplishment, congratulations!
    We have spring like weather here but I know we'll have more snow before the end of March.
    Lovely spring photos.

  20. Congrats on your 400th post! Wow! You have done some blogging! I am enjoying that Spring is really just around the corner. Hugs to you Anne

  21. Congrats! And we're not quite at spring yet, but soon.. We hope!

  22. Congratulations on your 400th post!!! bravo!!! and our gardens are behind yours, but things are budding and the rhubarb is poking out of the soil ...

  23. That's an accomplishment! Congrats! Looks like Printemps is already in the air in Normandy! Enjoy it:)

  24. I can't wait to have spring arrive here in Northern Canada. It happens so quickly. One day it seems like its winter and then before we know it, its summer. Spring doesn't last long enough.

  25. Congrats on your 400th post! Your blog is wonderful. Now I can't wait for Spring here. Starting to some signs of it, so before we know it!

  26. Congrats on 400 Maggie! Here's to many more.
    Beautiful sunny day here in NY, but no blooms yet, enjoy yours!

  27. Hi Maggie! You are always welcome to come with me and Lorraine on our outings! Maybe we should head to France to see you! Spring looks beautiful, and as I was in Printemps Paris and it is indeed wonderful, your version looks even better. Happy Pink Saturday. ~Marti

  28. Congratulations on your 400th post, Maggie!
    And welcome spring. I used to love it in Michigan when I saw all the blooms finally peeking out...and bringing in the forsythia to brighten up my home.

  29. Oh, Maggie -- it looks as though you are a tad closer to Printemps than we are, though today it is to be 60F and I suspect the rest of the glory isn't far behind! It looks absolutely lovely!

  30. PS -- I meant to say FIRST THING (and didn't) happy 400! I look forward to following the next 400!

  31. Oh what a delightful theme for a 400th post. Wow, congratulations! I've enjoyed each and every one, Maggie. Keep posting! ~ Sarah

  32. Congratulations! It's so fun to think how many ideas and words have been shared, isn't it?

    I am captivated by these words today: The rotivator in the potager.

    I am going to use that and think of you while I puzzle people here in Phoenix, Arizona!

    Looking forward to reading your lovely blog for years to come!

    Thanks for sharing this happy post.


  33. Congratulations on your 400th post!!
    I love Printemps, but Ete even more! The flowers are beginning to burst forth here.
