Des fleurs du printemps?


The bright selection of flowers in this upscale fleuriste (Marie pour 360 Degrés) could not even be contained in the large windows of the shop.  The colors spilled out across the street onto the columns of the Louvre. 


Although spring is still almost three weeks away, these blooms give us a taste of warmer days filled with sunshine.


bon weekend
