Flowers on My Mind

My mother-in-law brought me a beautiful bouquet of purple and white peonies and suddenly I'm compelled to plant flowers. I am heading to the nursery later this morning to inquire about what I won't kill. I had a rather unfortunate incident with a ficus last year, and I still feel guilty.

I love these shots from a flower shop in Montmartre. True to Paris form, there was a moped parked nearby for optimal photo composition.

I wish you a beautiful garden with your favorite flowers. Sigh…I'm also wishing for a garden =)

oh, vivid and lovely. You might try geraniums – they are super easy and so colourful.

these are simply delicious images, littlebrownpen!

i love the moped peeking in …

sometimes i think that if you could recreate the same vendor or greenhouse collection look at home, it would be pretty much perfect!

merci mon cher,

I agree with Suzanne – the little plant markers, the basket and boxes, the "just-so" arrangment of everything – perfect! and the moped is the icing on the cake! lovely.

Oh those Parisians…do they ever do anything that isn't irresistible and charming? As if the flowers weren't enough…how cute are the petite chalkboard signs? Great photos.
