A glimpse...


If I were le chat domestique,
I would sit in this window with the hardy geraniums.

"Le chay domestique" what a terrific term to accompany this photo.

In a house with books, there's surely a cat; And I'm sure he comes on the window, but in summer!it's too cold outside now..

Elizabeth Eiffel said...

I would love to own that window .......... and the house that comes with it!
It appears that you and Virginia are having a great time.
Bonne semaine.

That was one of my favorite parts of living in Europe--the window boxes. I have never seen such beautiful, billowing flowers as I have in Europe!! This image makes me long to go back:)

I hope that little balcony can hold all our weight Genie, we all want to be there haha! The bright red geraniums are a wonderful sight.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Me too. In summer you can hear music, the clatter of dishes, and snatches of conversations coming from windows. Always a warm experience.

suzanneberry said...

this is just delightful! the warm light on the books, the red calling out to the flowers...lovely! hope you are well.

And if I were a squirrel, I would eat the geraniums; probably whey they are behind bars. :)

Kris said...

Pretty geraniums. I love the wrought iron window guards.

Jack said...

Yup, the colorful window boxes in Italy and France make all the difference, don't they?

Loree said...

I love the view inside the window too.

Louise said...

This sort of photo always makes me wonder at the life I'd have if I lived on the other side of that window.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

We had another full day in Paris taking the Metro to Basilique Saint-Denis. Virginia, Peter, Holly and I met up with Owen and his wife Anne. How great it is to meet other bloggers and it looked like a festival of photographers. We took a quick tour of the cemetery as Owen and Anne led the way.

I found the end of my second 8 GB memory card and had remembered to bring another.

We shared a glass of Champagne (courtesy of Peter) at Virginia and Mary's apt. Holly and I joined Isabelle at a crepe restaurant for a late dinner. You know you are rather late when the usual haunts you pass on your path home are closed!

I cannot wait to show my photos, the new places I have discovered, the new Paris friends, and the beautiful corners of Paris.

Bises,
Genie

Glad you're having such a good time—and (selfishly) thrilled that you've taken so many pics to share with us.
I once had a Paris apt. (sigh), with a hardy geranium on the window sill and the requisite chat domestique—who almost got me in big trouble with the concierge when he sent the geranium down three stories to the ground below. (Better the geranium than the cat, I say.)

Randy said...

The geraniums really make this shot.

Owen said...

Really lovely to meet you and Holly today, had a fabulous time, and great to see V. again too !!!

Thanks so much for helping make that happen, will look forward to the next time. Have a safe trip back, and will look forward to seeing pictures...

Jann said...

I would love to be sitting in that room looking out!
