So called garden

Well... we live in Paris, so we don't have a garden. Just a kind of mini tiny balcony on which we cannot stand, I am not even sure that we can call it a balcony.
Whatever, David is taking close and tender care of our "rebord de fenêtre". He always buys new flowers and plants. He needs green all around him and I just enjoy it:)
On the third photo, there is our newest beauty hung to a shutter, present of sweet peanut just before she moved out of Paris to have her own gigantic garden.
I hope to visit her very soon:)








More corner views at Jane's.

But to live in Paris...oh my :^) When there, I love looking up at the window boxes full of flowers. Someone told me that the reason most people plant the geraniums is because they repel mosquitoes... true?

C'est l'inconvénient de Paris, difficile d'y avoir un jardin...

Mes préférences vont aux photos 5-6-7, bravo !

Makes me think of summer already, such pretty images, thank you. The third photo, the petunias were what I got for our small balcony last summer, they have many blooms!

Magnifiques photos !!! Même si c'est tout simple, je trouve ça toujours beau des photos de fleurs ... Le rose tendre de la 6ème me fait fondre ;o)

I lived in Chicago without any garden or yard, but could put a few pots out on my tiny balcony - loved growing herbs and flowers. Lovely photos!

alexandria said...

Small many times is just as lovely if not more. I believe it's more in your case!

Valerie said...

must be frustrating (i can't imagine to go back in an appartment without a balcony for instance -- we have a 5000m2 property) but still, you manage to catch so much beauty. something that says that quantity isn't everything. and i'm sure you can find so many places in Paris to feel closer to nature & flowers when you need it...
thanks for sharing

et lille oejeblik - a little moment said...

but you have so many amazing parks - the best and most beautiful i know.

your photos are stunning, the light and texture - and the colors and almost illuminated look of the flowers are just so beautiful.

RosaMaría said...

ohhh those photos are fantastic! you don't have a garden... but you are living in Paris! :)

Francesca said...

I've been an indoor gardener for years, and I loved it. I had lots of plants and flowers. Now I have an outdoor vegetable garden, and just a few flowers - not enough time for both.
