Is winter still hanging round in your doorstep? Then you need THIS BOOK.
IF Spring is beginning to show up you still need THIS BOOK.
If you have a mother, you need this book. Georgianna Lane's PARIS IN BLOOM is simply divine.
It inspired me to look for Paris pinks. Le Bonbon au Palais confiserie has perfect pink marshmallow.
They have deep pink framboise chocolate fish! This is a first.
Anne Maisoneuve is ready for Spring with peony Ts.
I thought of buying pretty pink ranunculus to paint inspired by Georgianna's book.
Every picture is a painting, evocative, inspiring, dreamy. I was shooting in Paul Langevin parc under a swath of cherry trees. Bloosoms were falling.
Paris in Bloom has useful information like Georgianna's favored flower boutiques. Quite a few were in last May's flower shop map.
She likes Au Nome de La Rose.
A Metro poster announcing Easter egg events I found yesterday.
No pastries in Georgianna's book, but many how-tos like Creating your own Parisian-style bouquet. And a field guide to recognizing common Paris spring-blooming trees.
There's a DIY tour of Georgianna's favorite locations for flowering trees and plants in central Paris.
Bear and I met up with Georgianna at Cafe St. Regis.
We were lucky to get her to come take a look at our tiny secret garden.
Who knew there were Camellias in my own back yard till Georgianna identified them?
I've been painting Camellias ever since. If you want/need a fabulous uplift, a taste of Spring, inspiration, oh anything ar all, do get PARIS IN BLOOM.
