As part of Paulita's "Dreaming of France" challenge, I thought I'd take you to the florist!
Watching the salesperson put together the bouquet was great fun. First, you chose several bundles.
Then she wrapped them in a lovely spiral, combining all the flowers.
Finally, she finished it off with a bow and tissue!
Not all florists are as large as the one in the first photo in the Marais where this bouquet was made. I rather liked the exterior of this one, not far from Musee d'Orsay.''
Of course, you don't need to visit a garden or a florist to find lovely flowers in Paris! They are in the cafes...
...and even the courtyards of the apartment buildings.

Meanwhile, it's still winter for many of us. Don't you deserve a stop at the flower shop?
