Les Scènes du Week-end {8}

We spent a lot of time sur le balcon this weekend.
I've got two words for you:  balcony garden!!

strawberries at breakfast
balcony garden - BEFORE

balcony garden - AFTER (so excited!!!)

my pretty new garden tools
FQ reading up on how to have a green thumb

one of my new window-box flowers {yes, I like purple}
perfect weekend reading material {swoon!}

 patriotic asparagus

Skyping with my mom & my sister Anna on Sunday, Mother's Day in Canada


  1. I totally think you'll have to go by "Glacier des Alpes" now that it's good weather!! Once a week sounds quite reasonable to me ;)

  2. I like your balcony garden and the photo of Anna and I, even though we look a bit fuzzy and gray! Oh wait, I am gray!

  3. Strawberries. Ah! (Still can't get enough of 'em...I have issues, clearly).

  4. Mmm, those strawberries look good! And do I recognize that plate? It's fantastic...

    We've been gardening too. Now if only it would warm up and start everything sprouting! I can't wait for all the fresh veggies this summer.

    I have been enjoying my commemorative Royal Wedding mags as well. It's the little things that make me happy. Like a prince and princess riding in a carriage through the streets of London!

    We should skype soon, too.

  5. Bonjour ! I'm the French wife of a Canadian husband.. so of course I had to start following your blog !! I can't wait to explore it & know more about you :) Bisous !

    I love all the garden pics, but I especially love the Skype pic with mom and sis!

  7. i dream of a garden but alas... no green thumb here! I need to read up on it like your frenchie ;) who by the way, was dashing next to his beautiful bride!

    i just shared my virtual date and couldn't get over your dress! i LOVE it so because like mine... it wasn't the "traditional" gown. 3 weddings-- YES! you'll have to share one day ;) for sure!

    THANK YOU for playing along
