Paris in Bloom

In autumn, the urns at Jardin du Luxembourg are spilling over with chrysanthemums. The colors change from year to year, but always stunning.

Bientôt !

 This time next month, I hope Mary and I will be stepping into this lovely courtyard at Place des Vosges again to check on the red vines!

Grosses boules

Believe it or not, I've run into the same bubble maker at the Hôtel de Ville two separate trips!. There's always a gaggle of kiddos trying to catch the enormous bubbles while I"m trying mightily to shoot them before they pop!

Paris Reflet

Alexis, located at Place des Vosges, is always a delight. He designs over the top evening gowns.

My Happy Place

From my very first visit to Paris in March, 2007, I have found a way to drag up a green chair, put my feet up and thank God I'm in Paris again. A plastic glass of champagne is the icing on the cake.

Les colonnes

Palais Galliera, Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris. While not always open, it's worth researching upcoming exhibits before your next visit.

I recommend making the short metro/bus connection to Rueil-Malmaison. It's a nice walk through the town which takes you through a beautiful park adjacent to Château de Malmaison.

Sunday Church Series - Paris Rouge

This door, on the north side of Notre Dame de Paris is often overlooked, but who could walk past this beautiful porte rouge and not stop for a photograph?

Paris Rouge - Le moto

On myr way into the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Church, I spotted this sharp red scooter. Interestingly enough, I've seen it parked in front of the church almost every trip since. I'd love to think it belongs to the priest!
