Ah, I see in the first photo that you've lost control of your "spot" of red in this one (but regained it in your last. Beautiful photos of what must've been a delightful and dreamy meal experience!

That meal looks fantastique! And your pictures below-- the cafe, the b/w, mon dieu.

Oh those shutters are so cool ... I want them. And aside from the vino delecto, what did you have for dinner? Looks like sea food .. yum

Daryl,
It was shrimp and vegetables in a lemon sauce I think. Maybe my friend Mary can remember, we had the same thing. BTW, I want everyone to know I ate my first escargots while in Paris and lived to tell it. Peter was kind enough to share his. Amazing what some garlic and butter can do!

You must be exhausted but isn't it wonderful to think that you'll be back in July. Feels like tomorrow !

COngratulations on your Birmingham blog's first anniversary. It's quite an achievement, isn't it?

Sleep well, I hope the jetlag isn't too nasty. The great thing is, if you wake up in the middle of the night, blogging awaits round the corner !

(and you were right of course about my blue flower, it was the shadow that attracted my eye :-)))

Oh and I forgot to say: love those reds!

I had an occasion to experience thos outdoor heaters at Le Petit Pont in the Quartier Latin. I was very pleasantly surprised at their output. It became so warm, I had to remove my jacket.

Maya said...

Ahhh, rouge. Lovely!

Virginia said...

Starman, the heaters weren't on most of the time. We didn't just love the chilly days but now that I'm home in the heat wave here in B'ham, I'd kill to be back in Paris where it's cooler. Actually, I like to be back regardless, but you knew that didn't you!

Nathalie,
Thanks and your flower shot was just grand today. You and I have this shadow thing going. We would have fun shooting together I think. And surprisingly, I don't really ever suffer from jetlag. I have waked up at the normal time both mornings. I'm grateful for that.

I hope you were waring red shoes when you took these!

Virginia said...

B2,
How did you know I love red shoes???ha

Jacob said...

Red is the color of my true love's hair.

No, not really. That phrase just came to me when looking at these photos. The staircase is amazing! You didn't play with that in Photoshop, did you?

I love all the photos! Every single one of them!

Virginia said...

Jacob,
I'm not smart enough to be jazz anything up in Photoshop!HA The color all over was rather disconcerting when you walked down those stairs!!

Jean Spitzer said...

I am having trouble picking my favorite--these are all so gorgeous. And, yes, it's amazing what garlic and butter can do; makes you think about snails in a whole new way.

Virginia said...

Jean
HA!!! Yes the garlic and butter and did I mention a generous amount of red wine and a little champagne preceeded the "Escargot Tasting Event"?? Ohh la la!
