Parisian windows


Lots of Parisians like to put plants and flowers on their windows or balconies. I'm one of them. This is in the 5th arrondissement near the Paris Mosque.

Laurent, this photo brings back for «Louis» many happy memories of walking through Paris.

Gorgeous stone flower balconies! I've never seen them before. To think mine are plastic and come from Mr Bricolage!

It's true and lovely!
I have a France lady neighbor ,
whose balcony is full of flowers all year round.
It is a nice photo you took...

Laurent, love the shades of red/pink/orange and the supporting brickwork on the lower balconies. If you do not look "up" in Paris you will miss much, n'est-ce pas?

WOW! What fantastic flowers and plants on the balconies!
My family and I just returned from a one month vacation visiting relatives in Norway and Sweden!
Bon voyage 'a Corse!

Hi Laurant
I've just joined your blog and just love this photo!

Wonderful to see the balconies with flowers growing so well, you can still have a garden high up in an apartment in Paris!
We all love and need beautiful things in our lives.
Take care.
