Paris Rouge XLIX - Les Géraniums


If you slip out the side door of the Église Saint Paul - Saint Louis in the Marais, you find yourself on this nice little walkway to the street. I usually try and exit this way. Interesting little courtyards all the way. I'd like to be invited in.  One day peut-être.

Just catching up with you - some lovely scenes as always. I never can resist red geraniums. Hope your US weather has calmed down. My heart goes out to those who suffered.

This photo is so depictive of every-thing Parisian. Alley-ways, red geraniums trailing down white-washed walls, bicyclettes - just perfect!

Unfortunately you could not get in for a closer view ! but just nice !

V, you're inspiring me with the kerbside cleanup not far away ~ I'm thinking it could be easier to secure a bicycle than a Louis chaise. Not to ride, though ~ I'll paint it white and plant geraniums in the basket!

I love the gate, and the vibrant red just makes this picture come to life.

I love this composition, the vélo, the flowers, the gate...and a soft touch of mystery there!
Happy weekend!

Love the red geraniums against the white walls. Beautiful photo.

Lovely, Virgina, even if I never loved the geraniums (and I don't know why)

Scenes like this make one wonder what's behind all the gates and fences through which we can't see or photograph.

Water the geraniums and hop on the bike to see Paris ...

Love the way the red stands out!

Now I get why my mom loved her red geraniums so much!!!

Charming little spot!

Charming little courtyard! I'd love to have one just like this—and you know I'd invite you in. :~}

You could do windows, geraniums and bicycles every day for a year and they would still be worth looking at, wouldn't they?

I love peeking in through gates and past those giant doors in Paris.
I love the angle of this shot!
