Marché d'Aligre - les fleurs du marché

Marché d'Aligre

This market serves the neighborhood 
and is not usually frequented by tourists.  

No matter the season or the weather, 
you can be sure to find a broad array of flowers.

My daughter lives in the 12me. I'm afraid I don't know much of the area other than where she lives, near Cour St Emilion.

I like flowers a lot. Although they don't last long, they try their best to make the world a beautiful place :)

Hello Genie! Have a great day!

I know someone who would enjoy some flowers. Shipping might be a little more that 4-5€.

The fresh Christmas trees and a lots of colorful tulips look so pretty together.

After all our ice, I need a pick-me-up. Thanks.

Lovely shot, Genie. I never understand how all the flowers survive outdoors when it's bitter cold—but they do!

Fresh flowers always lift one's spirits. They look particullary fantastic en masse in a market. Warm regards.

Nothing like fresh flowers.

We could learn a lot from how the French arrange their shop displays. So many of them are very impressive.

Mr. Bird, you definitely need some flowers to offset the snow!

Betty, I love the 12ième and will tell you about a few of my favorite places there.

To all - buy yourself a small bouquet for the weekend - You probably deserve it!
