Marché Bastille


From a simple black cardboard box comes an array of color and fragrant blooms elegantly suited for a princess.

One wonders about the buyer and the seller, and just who will be the recipient of a spring bouquet?

Oh I have been wracking my brain trying to think of the name of those flowers Genie, I can just smell them from here,I love the soft pastel colours. I will have to check back later and see if anyone has mentioned the name,think it begins with 'H'. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

That bouquet would look beautiful in my "Country French" kitchen. The one of my dreams, that is!

Jack said...

Very nice, Genie. For Grace in Perth, they look like lilacs to me . . . very fragrant, but they don't last very long when I cut them in my yard in May. Enjoy them for two days, maybe. Genie, have a wonderful weekend.

Alexa said...

I have the perfect spot for that lush bouquet—chez moi! But your photo is almost as good as the real thing. Bon weekend, Genie!

Cildemer said...

Hum! J'ai cru sentir l'arôme du lilas pour de vrai!
