Dreaming of France -- Hope


Thank you for joining this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.

I'll keep it brief tonight as turmoil still reigns in my heart, but that doesn't prevent me from dreaming of France.
On the first trip that Earl and I took together to France, we stayed overnight in Chamonix in the French Alps. When we woke up the next morning, it had snowed and these tulips had snowflakes clinging to them.
So, I have hope that spring will come and that things will improve. 
How bout you? Are you dreaming of France?
Thanks for playing along and please visit the blogs of others who join in too.

It's crazy isn't it? This dread is so all encompassing! I posted my Dreaming of France contribution earlier today, now I've added the link to you.
Hang in! We shall overcome.

I don't have a whole lot of hope for a lot of things at the moment. But I appreciate some pretty French tulips.

Another positive is that Valls lost the Socialist primary.

Sim, So glad to know that we are in it together.
Louise, Sorry if the craziness of the U.S., plus the Brexit, is bleeding into Australia. You guys probably have your own crazy down there.
Francetaste, I'll take your word for it about Valls. I guess I'd better start brushing up on French politics.

Dear Paulita, this madness seems to be seeping into every country in the world and Trumps ban smacks of Hitler and for all that is good we must stop him, he is a rich self loving weasle that I hope someone can stop in his tracks, we have the same problem with brexit in UK which threatens our happiness here in France

tulips amid the snow - the prettiest sight to awaken to

Paulita said...

Roz, Yes, I agree with you. I hope that we will have an impact on the people who are trying to close doors on everyone's adventures.
Dianne, I really enjoyed your beautiful flowers in Monet's Garden.
