Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Les Fleurs Dans Les Rues.........

Fleurs trailing from pretty window boxes
ironcast lanterns  - scrolled signage
and cobbled alleyways
all an integral part of that quaint old area
known as Montmartre

Gorgeous! I wish I could look out my window and have a view like that with the scent of flowers at my fingertips. Makes me wish for spring again. :)

Hi Dianne,

Walking down the old cobble-stoned streets, and seeing all the shops was a real delight. Love the flowers in the hanging baskets.

Happy new week

To think that some travel guides actually advise travelers to SKIP Montmartre! Why? == It is too "touristy"== ha! Lovely shots. Bonne journée, Dianne. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)
