Primrose

The primrose sign says, “I am produced in the Mont d’Or countryside”. The Monts d’Or is a mountain chain northeast of Lyon, France.

March 10, 2015, posted by Michelle – In contrast to the icy weather the Southern United States has experienced the past few weeks, here in my part of France (Lyon) it’s been fairly mild lately. The past couple of weeks have been sunny and sidewalk cafés are full of people enjoying lunch while soaking up the sun. Daffodils have started to pop out and the small flower kiosks and markets all over the city are starting to look bright and cheery again.

Ladder

Great Idea: Use an old ladder to display flower pots and plants. We loved the miniature clawfoot tub planters.

One Word: Happy…. AND we found another creative idea – An old wooden cable spool is a great place to showcase flowers and plants in pretty planters.

    Love the flowers! The ladder idea is fabulous and the flowers in the baskets look so inviting. If you looked out my window you would think we were in the middle of the winter. One short trip today and I was reminded that Spring really is on its way. There is a small, local farmers market close by filled with fresh fruits and veggies. Of note, the Louisiana strawberries could not have looked more delicious. On the perimeter you could find geraniums, petunias, and ferns everywhere. It made me want to get my garden gloves out. I will have to return to take photos…it is a feast for the eyes.
