Located on rue Claude Benard, this very Parisian flower shop was a block from our apartment. One Sunday morning while I was walking to the Val de Grace for services, I spotted the owner putting out her flowers.  We had a nice chat,  and she let me snap some photographs .  My 100 French Stranger # 22!

The flowers are beautiful and love your l00 strangers project. Funny, what caught my attention was her great blouse and the chic way she wears her sweater. I live in Montreal and the French just have the style DNA.

In Paris, you can barely walk a few blocks without seeing a beautiful florist shop. You must be getting ready for your return trip to Paris, n'est-ce pas?

Mais oui. The hotel is booked, the suitcase is out (it never went UP) and I am getting excited all over again.

Yes, she was a very nice, if a bit reserved lady and I found her stylish as well. BTW, I was drawn to the gorgeous rose paintings. She said a friend of her is the artist.

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment today!

Email me your address so I can get your prize off to you before I leave next week.

Hope your back is better. I had my first PT treatment today and I am much better as well.
