Paris in Bloom

Who would think that I'd scoop this book off the shelf as soon as I saw it for the first time? Well pretty much anyone who knows me. 

Such a glorious cover and such a glorious concept. Paris in Bloom is gorgeous to behold. Largely pictorial it is the work of specialist flower photographer (who knew that was a job? but it sounds fabulous) Georgianna Lane

There are four chapters, Parks and Gardens, Floral Boutiques, Market Flowers and Floral Displays. All gorgeous.

Georgianna often pairs floral depictions on walls, architecture or ribbons with real blooms. It works beautifully.

There is a handy Field Guide to common spring blossoms at the back, and listings of Georgianna's favourite places to see blossoms and blooms in Paris-parks, gardens, floral boutiques and markets. 

We all love Paris in the Springtime and Paris in Bloom is a terrific source of inspiration and solace for those times when you can't be there yourself. 

Dreaming of France is a wonderful Monday meme

Louise, Yes, I can definitely see that this book would catch your eye, or mine! Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along with Dreaming of France. I'll be interested to see what other architecture and flowers she continued.
