Paris – quelques apercus peu de végétation

April 9, 2011

How delicate this avenue of clear stemmed amelanchiers looks – so simple and so attractive –  in a courtyard off Rue de Faubourg Saint Denis. This street just hums with colourful multicultural vibe so the calm character of this composition is show stopping.

Home from home in Cité de Trévise. The Three Graces – a copy of the original in the Louvre – mark the centre of the small gated circle. And Cercis, early this year, froth away at Les Halles.

In Parc de Belleville, gorgeous rounded shapes of Viburnum tinus do the job at forming an evergreen edge, at splitting space with a defined shape and form and at contrasting well with the architectural view of the city. The roof top restaurant at the Pompidou Centre has classy, very long-stemmed roses. So lovely in the empty space.

  1. Why oh why is Paris so perfect and so far away? J’aime Paris you have my heart!


  2. I love that roof-top restaurant with its panorama like something out of ‘The Aristocats’! We went for lunch and were so staggered by the beauty of the waiters… men and women… that we immediately booked to have supper there that evening! The woman who led us to our table would surely have caused a traffic pile-up were she to have ventured outside, and Peter could barely speak to the wine waiter, who looked like another race of being. I barely remember what I ate, though I recall that my main course had a name: The Tiger who Cried!

    What’s not to love about that?

    Well that’s a good enough review to pick up on. I shall return especially to ‘The Tiger who Cried’ Decadence but done with aplomb so looks perfectly natural!
