Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

fit for a king ......

this wonderful old patisserie on Rue Montorgueil
was started way back in 1730 and is the
"oldest patisserie in Paris"
Nicolas Stohrer was official baker to the King Louis xv
now that's as good as it gets!!

 without a doubt I think the products here
are the finest in all of France
however you will need to take much cash
or a well loaded credit card!!
Don't forget to look up to admire the wonderful murals and frescoes
painted by the artist Paul-Jacques-Baudy
the same artist who painted the ceiling in the grand-foyer
of the Paris Opera House

une fleur en liberte .........

although I've been learning French for a while
I still don't quite understand the meaning of this signage
amid a lovely display of flowers out-front of a small florist shop
did it mean that passers-by could take a flower ??
What-ever the meaning it was a beautiful display

rambling the back-roads of montmartre ....

~   rue des saules   ~
early morning before this quaint village
has waken for the day when one can slowly meander
the cobbled back-roads - soaking up the ambiance
of a bygone era when artists, poets and musicians
succumbed to the lure of this lively neighbourhood
