Aw, the Flowers in France, what’s there not to love. It pleases me greatly that many of you have enjoyed my Trip To France Posts of Week 1, Week 2, A French Wedding & Mouton Cadet Bordeaux. If you haven’t viewed the previous posts already, you must, to gain an understanding of France and my experiences.
In this story, I’m going to show you some of the amazing flowers I captured on camera while there.
I love flowers and couldn’t help taking more pictures than I can count whenever I saw them. As a result, I was doing all kinds of closeups. What was so amazing to me were the window boxes full of flowers? Elsie had asked, “How do they keep them so nice and watered?”. That was an excellent question because many are in very high places. How and whatever they do, they were just beautiful.
Now, let’s begin my photographer’s journey of flowers in France.
First, let me show you the flowers I saw in the villages and towns we visited.
Flowers In France: A Photographic Journal
Hydrangeas were everywhere
I loved these wild Poppies that we saw on the side of the road.
I know will come as no surprise. Among the many flowers In France, you will see is an abundance of Lavender in many of their gardens.
Among the many flowers were the flower boxes. You saw them on window sills, on the side of houses or buildings.
I loved the many gardens we saw, large and small.
I loved the small cottages.
Who wouldn’t love this?
You remember this one, don’t you? It seemed fitting to include this one in this story.
Some flowers are haphazard, but I still loved them.
You would find flower boxes and planters in front of many shops to add a touch of color to their entry.
Some flowers are left to their own devices, and they still looked beautiful.
Now we’re off to Paris. Window boxes were everywhere, as well as flower shops and marts.
The Flower Marts abounded with flowers.
The Flower Marts and vendors were charming.
I would like to show Versailles Palace, the “pièce de résistance”. The flower beds were massive and beautiful.
The bushes and trees were trimmed to perfection.
Here, are some closeups of some of the amazing flowers, especially in Versailles.
This was one of my favorites from the Marie Antoinette Domain
I do hope you have enjoyed my flower tour of France. Before I leave, I would like to show you one last picture that says so much about France and their attitude toward life: “Vivre, Rire, Aimer” (To live, To laugh, To Like/Love).
Do you love flowers? What are some of your favorite flowers? Please share a few pictures and stories about your travels. It would be so much fun to hear about your experiences.
To be continued…. Well, we are almost finished with my Sightseeing In France Stories: The last one is the hardest for me. We were treated to such great food and wine that it will be very hard to decide what pictures and stories to share. The wine posts will be individual. Each of the different wines, we enjoyed, have their unique history. Some of these histories are just down right fascinating, such as Mouton Cadet.
