Quelques Fleurs de Paris


I do not know what caught my attention first, the orange calla lillies or the stunning paving tiles arranged in cascading semi-circles

Whatever it was, I'm glad it did! What a gorgeous capture! Of course, I love the flowers and colors, but the paving is superb! I love it! You do find the most wonderful and delightful things to photograph and I'm so glad you share them with us! Have a great week!

They are just gorgeous! So much variety and vibrancy! I would love to save this image to my computer if it's okay with you? It's just gorgeous and I love to pull out pretty pictures now and then and stare at them wishingly.

So lovely Gemie, I was captivated by the fleurs in Paris, they were truly lovely.....my favorite definitely the peonies.
Hope all is well with you- in saint Remy de Provence at the moment and loving it x

It must be a pain to have to put these out every morning and take them back every evening.

Alexa said...

Quelques? There's an understatement! What a stunning display you've captured. If I were buying, I'd be standing on those artfully placed paving stones for a looong time, trying to decide!

Your blog is truly wonderful! I am following you! I love France and French language and culture and everything! I am looking forward to see your beautiful posts!

I love how all the flowers are arranged in vases out on the sidewalk and not behind a refrigerated case. Do they smell as good as they look?

To all -- I needed these flowers today and all of your wonderful comments! Blogger is misbehaving and I cannot stay signed in (again). I am overwhelmed with work (a good thing) and I cooked (and transported) the main course for our supper club tonight... (no more whining from me!)

Thank you Vanna and Venus for following me and leaving your comments!

Gros bisous
Genie

Tout comme vous je suis très attirée par les étalages de fleurs des fleuristes...
Les couleurs jonglent entre elles...
Gros bisous.

When I was young I would spend my last nickel on getting my hair done; now I'll spend my last nickel on a bouquet. These are lovely!

Perfect exposure, depth of field, composition and collor-- wow! You won't see that distinctive paving in the Staes--sigh. Helluva portfolio you are building--
