Weekend flowers


As winter drags on, I really love having flowers around my apartment. I already had a bunch of irises on my kitchen table, and yesterday my mum and I planted some primroses (primula veris) on my kitchen sill.
On weekends from now on, I'll be posting pictures of flower-adorned balconies and windows from around Paris...

These pictures are so beautiful! I love primroses but unfortunately I always manage to kill them. It would be great to have a whole windowsill full of them.

Primroses look beautiful, I'd like to touch them! That picture is great!

I like primroses, your photos make them look even nicer. Thank for your lovely comments!I will come back to see the balcony flowers. I love passing here for a touch of France I happen to miss sometimes!

I buy flowers every time I go to the grocery. It's too easy to pick up tulips or lilies for a little vase. They are $4 a bunch and are just one of those things that say so much about a home.

I even buy the much-maligned carnations. They are cheap and a low dome of all one color carnations in a glass cube vase is really lovely. And besides.. they are flowers! It's a shame that they have gotten a bad rap.

Eclectic entertaining, why do carnations have a bad rap? I wasn't aware of that - it's a pity, they have such bold hues!

Ekub, this is my first attempt at keeping flowers otherwise than in a vase, and I hope I will not kill them... I'll keep you posted!

Artycho,I am genuinely delighted that my little posts bring you a taste of home. I just love your beautiful blog and am an admirer of your work!

Apologies for leaving a post unrelated to the weekend flowers, but I have a question for the oracle.
Dear Oracle,
Oftentimes, as I am walking down the street, safely on a leash, I come across other pets which are roaming freely about. My mistress is often scared as she remembers the day where I was brutally attacked by a black lab on the street. Hence every time she sees a big dog walking without a leash she gets very scared, especially if it spots me and starts running towards me.
My question, dear Oracle, is, why are so many people irresponsible when walking their pets?

So pretty! In the winter months I NEED flowers in my home! Can't wait to see more photos!

Ooh. I am looking forward to your pics of Paris windowboxes. When I was there,I went to study Art History, but I came back with an album full of windowboxes and gardens:)
