Fleurs de Paris

One thing that we noticed were the fabulous flower displays. These were everywhere..On the Markets, in the Parks, also in all the Florists. Absolutely stunning and such pride in their displays, even simple buckets of Tulips and other flowers..all lined up, just sitting pretty.

On the corner of the street we stayed in , is a fantastic florists. Truly amazing. We were in awe each time we passed, noticing new displays and little things they may of changed throughout the day. The shop is called JO FLEURISTE ..if you are ever in the vicinity of Rue de Longchamp 75116, pay a visit, you will not be disappointed.

  13. Growing up in France, my family would buy fresh flowers every week. It was considered a necessity. I rarely buy flowers because i see them as a luxury... also maybe because it's hard to get excited about the flowers at American grocery stores.

  17. Hi Anne,
    Love the flower pics! We just got back from seeing the Holland tulip fields and they were by far, the best thing I've seen in all of Europe.
