Fêting les mères


Above: the most beautiful bouquet; a light apéro before a more filling main course, below, that we dubbed, "confit-ment de canard" (aux olives) accompanied by frites cooked in (what else?) duck fat

Yesterday, just before lunchtime, it seemed that almost everyone was wielding a bouquet. Stopping for an after-market coffee at our usual spot before heading home we must have counted at least a dozen from our terrace table and couldn't help but notice that roses, reserved mostly for Valentine's Day, were few and far between. Flowers of almost every sort were everywhere, imparting a sense of optimism and renewal, as Paris seems to be getting back to its old self. BPJ
