I'm loving the beautiful and often secret courtyards this week. Reminds me of exploring in Aix en Provence when a student in the 60s.


I love courtyard views. I would much rather have a view of a courtyard with foliage outside my window than a water view, and I am very happy to report that that is what I have here in Bill's apartment. And, a couple of people in this building maintain the most beautiful garden in the back with antique garden tables and figurines, and a saint figurine in the middle which is lit up at night and the first thing you see when you come in the front building door is the view out the back building door which is kept open so the feral cats can come in for inside the door feral cat food and necessary shelter when the weather is bad. And I see trees out my little office window where I am right now and sometimes there are little birdies and I have beautiful ivy plants growing up and down the window guard of my tiny office windowsill.
I look forward to more courtyard views in Paris as they come in.
