The Rainbows of Paris

While David Lebovitz tells us that Paris has now turned purple, we found Paris awash in Pamplemousse on our visit last year, but there were many, many rainbows too. Parisians do seem to love their rainbows.

They love them in shops.

You might see more rainbow after all that vodka!

Rainbows of chocolate
 A lovely rainbow of  ballerina flats at Repetto

It's not surprising to find rainbow bars in the Marais
They even dressed the iconic ET in a rainbow
for Bastille Day 2013
which may seem a political statement, and it was,
but not the one you might think
Saturday Snapshot is a wonderful weekly meme now hosted by WestMetroMommy

Dreaming of France is a wonderful Monday meme

Ah... Thanks for that link. So the rainbow was a tribute to former South African president Nelson Mandela. I never knew South Africa was called 'The Rainbow Nation'. Thanks for the info. :)

I love the colour focus of your last few Paris posts.
The Eiffel Tower looks special in any lighting :-)

So nice and cheerful to see all the colors. And I like Purple Paris too.

Love the rainbows. Funny that you don't see Parisians wearing rainbows of colors. Maybe one bright item to spark against the black. Here's Mine
