A bouquet of hyacinthe came home from the market with me, along with the pale roses pictured below and dille to mix with Thursday's ranucule.
Hortensia such as this always remind me of the hydrangea bushes in my grandmother's yard.
Note the "herbe a'chat" or catnip!
I brought some thyme home for the chef, who is keeping busy cooking for all our guests!
These floral-patterned tablecloths were found at a Paris shop.

I love hydrangias. I'm going to try and plant some this summer and see what happens.

*sigh* one of things i love most about Paris...the flower shops...
your selection is incroyable!
(and sorry about the dentist's news...)

I agree with one of the comments..never can there be too many flowers inside the house as we wait for our gardens to bloom! You made a good choice in flowers for your home! I drool over the displays in the market when choosing a bunch to take home! Oh those mini roses in the above photo...I personally would have picked those!You gave us many choices!
Happy weekend!hugs NG

I bought some flowers for a friend and I can remember just how fresh and alive the flower shop seemed to be.
You photos convey this....! I bought mine on Ave du Maine.. and felt 'stupid' as people in the streeet smiled and spoke (of which I did not understand). I must have looked "love struck" for my ballerina friend....
What a memory! really close! thank you!!

There can never be too much flowers :-) I am happily shopping yellow flowers for Easter now, to decorate our cain. We are leaving for cabin days in a few hours.

Iris Murdoch once said tht People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
Looking at these pictures - she was right
I love french markets!

Gorgeous flowers. I can almost smell the fragrances as they waft up from the stalls.

Beautiful photos, Tara! I love them all - I almost feel I can smell the herbs. Hydrangeas have always been a favorite of mine - when I was a little girl I would pretend there were fairies in my great-aunt's hydrangeas lining her garden path, lol - and they still look like fairy flowers to me.
Those tablecloths are gorgeous!
Thank you for sharing the lovely spring bouquets and eye candy ~ xo

Those whiteish, pinkish roses with the slightest hint of green are my absolute favorite when it csomes to flowers! They sooo remind me of Paris! Thanks for the very beautiful reminder that Spring has indeed sprung!

How beautiful all the flowers are, there is nothing like having fresh flowers in the house. I can imagine the fragrance walking through the flower market. AND I LOVE those table cloths.
