Picture This: Flowers

Today happened to be one of the few times I had my camera with me while at the market.  I marked this ‘occasion’ by snapping a quick photo of some of the lovely flowers for sale at Cours Saleya.

My favourite flower is la pivoine (the peonie) but I do appreciate Mother Nature’s skill at turning out some magnificent blooms!

    Beautiful Tanya! Don’t you just love the flower markets? I try to get myself a bouquet every Saturday….just because. Enjoy your weekend

      I love them a lot. Sadly, because we’re often away from home I don’t often buy flowers…which really sucks. Maybe in my next life! Bon weekend! 🙂

    I’m with you on les pivoines–they’re gorgeous! Last summer in Paris I saw some at a fancy fleurist’s that were a deep fuchsia. I nearly died, they were so beautiful!

      I wanted pivoines for my wedding bouquet but since we were planning a Sept wedding it would have cost a fortune for those spring blooms. There’s a fleurist in the 17th that I’ve passed several times and they always seem to have the most gorgeous pivoines! They are just so beautiful.

    I used to live in a house in St Germain en Laye, with lots of pivoines..I miss that!
