Next Stop, Paris. . . .

Just a very quick Good Morning before I finish my packing, and we head to the airport.  I will admit to some reluctance about leaving our new garden just as the sun is promising to shine on Vancouver for a week or so and everything is green and lush and blooming. This would also be great weather for the cycling we've been waiting to do, and as we wheel our cases over to the Skytrain Station, I know I'll be wondering why we're leaving this gorgeous city just as it's being its most gorgeous self. . .

But it's been so very busy around here, and it will be good for us to spend three weeks just the two of us. Family here will be enjoying our garden terrace, and some sleep training and sleep catch-up for one small weary family will be expedited by the extra condo space. And we'll be in a few European cities that have architecture and culture and food enough to distract me from worrying about the aphids on my roses or whether my daughter has watered the plants on the front balcony . . . .

It's been awhile since we've done a trip that involves moving relatively often, and I'm not sure what that might mean for blogging. But we'll be in Paris tomorrow morning, and once I've got over that first horrid confrontation with jetlag (I rarely sleep more than 20-30 minutes on the flight, and we arrive in the morning before our room will be ready, and it's a nine-hour time zone change!), I'll be doing my best to post a few times a week. Between that, I'll certainly be posting on Instagram.

Off I go then. . . .

  4. Bon Voyage. I know that 'Why am I travelling?' feeling only too well. Gardens are always at their best as we leave. Just as well you have your family on hand :). B x

  7. Bon voyage! Your garden will look even more amazing after your travels and I can only imagine will be thoroughly enjoyed by the family caretakers.

  10. Bon voyage and hire a pair of Vélibs in Paris. Paris has become far more cyclable than in decades past; the city has implemented many measures to favour cyclists and pedestrians. http://www.paris.fr/velo http://www.velib.paris/

  12. I know what you mean about leaving a garden which is just beginning to bloom . If you are like us , when you get back it will be dump the cases & dash out to check what has appeared in the garden . Then the work begins :) - but you have all the fun to go before that . Have a lovely time .

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
