Géraniums dans la fenêtre


View from our wonderful apartment on rue Berthollet, June 2009.  Eva kept the flowers watered for us.

Lovely flowers at the windows, we can't have them like that ...

Nice pic but what I really like most today is the header photo with "Paris through my lens" on the cup... :)
God bless you!

Waiting up every morning and looking out that geranium clad window was a blessing! Lovely photo, Madame V!

Dianne said...

What a pretty sight - touches of red and the grey mansard roof. Very easy on the eye!

I would love to water these geraniums myself (which would mean that I live in the apartment)...

What an ideal apartment window! I am starting to feel like red is the colour of Paris! You know, red cafe awnings, red coffee cups? And now these pretty flowers..

Virginia said...

Brittany,
Oui, I think ROUGE is the color of Paris you know.

Vreni, It was truly the best to be there for 3 weeks that summer.

Dianne,
Merci

Leif, a blessing indeed and right past the flowers we had the amazing view of the Val de Grace dome!

Cezar, I'm glad you like my header. It was fun doing it.

Wong, I guess geraniums don't grow in your area. :(

Geraniums are a favorite and I like to add sprigs of other plants/ flowers to the posts!

Geraniums are my favorite...and easy to care for. The French music adds a nice touch...Thank you!

Love the red geraniums!!! My mother always had that same red geranium and white ones on our back porch!!!

I think you might not have seen the flowers across the street from our apartment in the 17e.

To start, the header photo is great. I really think that patisserie needs to have cups made with your logo!

The music is great --- lovely songs, lovely voice...very nice to listen to as I'm catching up on a week of photos. Such great variety. I definitely like the color in the photo on the quai. And what a lovely view you had from that apartment. Waking up to the curly-q's in the iron work and the red geraniums would make every day a special day in Paris.

And she did an excellent job, clearly!
You've done it again--made me want to be there NOW!!

This is so nice, Virginia. A wonderful sight to begin the dya.

I wish I was in that apartment right now! I really like your header photo.
