Rue Montorgueil


The curtained window with its box of flowers,
belies the chaos of the street below
providing a refuge for the birds and those who reside within.

Rue Montorgueil is one of my favourite streets in Paris!

Oooooh, I'm with Vreni. It's the best place for breakfast and food shopping and the atmosphere is wonderful. Plus of course it boasts Stohrer's and who can resist that place?

Everyone needs a refuge. I'm glad these little guys found some flowers and a spot to rest.

I bought flowers this am to go in our window box and believe it or not, Genie, in the process I was thinking of some of the wonderful Paris and Beyond shots!

Such a delightful capture, Genie, and a wonderful reminder that in spite of all the violence, anger and unhappiness in our sad world today, there is still beauty to enjoy and soothe the soul! Hope your week is going well, mon amie!

Hugs

Rue Montorgueil is a place one must definitely visit when in Paris.

Bibi said...

I can't think of Rue Montorgueil without thinking of L'Escargot, one of my favorite restaurants.

Alexa said...

Oh, for a little pied-à-terre right there! Though at this point I'd take it pretty much anywhere in Paris. :~}

Jean said...

Some of my favorite pics are doors and windows. This one is fabulous.

Makes me wanna be a pigeon.

C'est une typique fenêtre française.Je me rappelle cette rue à Paris.
Bon week-end !!!

Randy said...

It's like sunshine right outside the window.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

If this was my house, we would probably feel compelled to paint it, but it is perfect just as it sits on Rue Montorgueil.

I am finally home and leave again in a week for Paris with Nanette!

I am slowly this week catching up with friends again... Thank you for your comments while I have been so silent.

Bises,
Genie
