City Windows...Paris

I love the many ways the French get creative
about dressing up their street-level windows.

Big city living can be a challenge
and when there's not much of a balcony for greenery, 

or a way to keep peering eyes from the street level out,
they use what they can. 

A little window box goes a long way
when the soul needs transport. 

And then, of course, there are the upper level window boxes... 

And everywhere you look, beauty upon beauty. 
So many windows, so little time!

The storefront windows were beautiful when I was there. Most of the apartment window boxes had red geraniums. All beautiful.

Bonjour Kirsten!

I can see you are gearing up for the PARTY! I am thrilled that you are participating my dear. These are gorgeous windows, and imagine what one can see through them?

Much love and have a super day! Anita
