Paris en fleurs (1)
I promised I'd post pictures of Paris's most 'flower-ful' balconies every weekend, and I'm starting this series with my favorite florist's, Jardin d'Auteuil (tank you, Taocito, for reminding me the name in the Comments)(75 rue d'Auteuil, 16th arrondissement).
The tiny boutique's breathtaking displays are always color-themed. This week it's a galaxy of reds.
While we're on the subject of red: in her blog, Joanna suggested we all wear red lipstick on Valentine's day. As I'm very pale I fear it may make me look like a vampire or a Eastern European hooker, but still, the idea's lovely (also, I saw Tim Burton's 'Sweeney Todd' on Saturday so I'm embracing blood-red hues and my taste for Victorian looks). I'd love to hear what your favorite red lipstick is...
