Re: Clair, are you paying attention? Useful expressions!

Hi mint. Any size "stone staircase" has a perron.

I remember my Great Great grandmother talking about plants (geranium) on her "perron". It was a small one with 1/2 steps.

Eric, thank you and what a pleasure it is to "see" you here again!Big Smile [:D]

I don't have even a single step to the front door so no perron but outside our petit salon downstairs, there are a couple of steps to garden level so that will be my perron the very next time a French person come to visit us!Big Smile [:D]

Eric, we do have another perron!  The stone staircase leads from the upper level of our house to the lower garden and has 14 steps as well as a quarter turn so it is a pretty perron and, if/when we have to sell the house, I shall describe this as un très joli perron avec ses pots de fleurs!Big Smile [:D]

Thank you again for the French lessons you provide with such authority and clarity!

Hi mint. I'm here and often reading but some of the questions asked do not need my input.

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

Oh, Norman, you're a pussycat - and a really helpful one too. 😉
