Les herbes et les fleurs de printemps



An abundance of healthy herbs and plants available in every market...

Herbs and flowers on my Paris terrace to go with the lantern...

Now, just to find a cafe table and chairs...

Herbs and flowers, one of my favorites things. One day Paris...
If I keep saying it, I may get there.
Enjoy your week,
Penny

Beautiful shot, Genie, and I can just imagine lovely your terrace is!! Perfect to go with the lantern and I have no doubt that you'll find the perfect table and chairs! Hope your week is going well, mon amie!

Hugs
Sylvia

Lovely...
And I'm starting to put a little more herbs in my cooking. And am starting to plant some on cute little pots.

A beautiful accompaniment to your lanterns, dear Genie. {I've just popped back to have a look at them. How does anyone manage to return home from Paris without arranging a shipping container of goodies to follow them!!}

Hello Genie:
The herbs and flowers look so deliciously good together, we are sure that your balcony will look wonderful!

We are, however, horrified at the price of 4 euros for a Thyme plant. The equivalent here would be not quite 1 euro!!

Browsing a farmers' market can be uplifting... anytime.

A wonderful way to measure the seasons march.

But in Paris it seems you can find these delights even in the dead of winter. Sigh.........

Can't wait for this Paris home so that I can come and visit :)

I can smell the thyme...

Riet said...

what a great photo and I can smell the thym.

Starman said...

When looking for your table and chairs, have you tried the flea markets? Or maybe a restaurant supply store, if you can find one.

Kris said...

HA! Yep...all you need now is the cafe table and chairs. I'm starting to get the picture and I like it!

I love herbs and flowers mixed in pots or window boxes...especially rosemary and basil.

Alexa said...

This terrace just gets better and better. If wishing made it so, we'd all be there now, inhaling the fragrant thyme and sipping on something yummy.

ParisMaddy said...

So inviting. Mmm, I can smell them.

You know of course that I am day-dreaming so I will plan an enormous terrace to hold all who want to join us... and, the skies will be clear in l'heure bleue.

Bises,
Genie

Vreni said...

I´m sure you will find the perfect table and chairs for your Paris terrace. I´m looking forward to having a glass of wine up there! Of course I will invite you also to my balcony ;-)

Kate said...

Rosemary and thyme among the blossoms...a winning combination.

Louise said...
