la ste vierge qui fait de la pub pour un restaurant....belle devanture ce restaurant, cela donne envie d'y faire tour.
Depuis le temps que je voulais te le dire, et je sais pas pourquoi j'y pense aujourd'hui, mais je trouve dommage que les photos de ton diaporama sont flous et pixelises.

I loved how everyone has flowers on their windowsills in France (I have way too many pictures of such windowsills!). These are nice.

I like the looks of outdoor cafe. And those red window flowers are gorgeous.

What a great find, but of course you must look UP! :)

A small "gated community!"

Randy said...

That looks like a nice place. Love the geraniums.

Would the statue restrain a diner from the sin of gluttony or whatever might transpire later in the evening with one's dining companion?

Wish more of us Americans put geraniums in our windows! Great shots!

Ciel, I'll meet you at this restaurant for dinner. Please reserve a table outside under one of those umbrellas.

La vierge descend manger sur le coup de midi ?

I think Mary would get a laugh from the comments here.

Une madone moins protégée que la Joconde, des barreaux mais pas de vitre. La deuxième photo compléte bien la 1ère.
J'avais photographié une vierge en coin de rue dans le vieux village de Cergy au début de mon blog. Je me suis aperçue il y a peu qu'elle avait été mise à l'abri derrière un verre.

It's a beautiful place, I love the sculpture of "Virgin Mary"there, it looks a peaceful ambiance.

Your images illustrate perfectly the charms of France. I like the detail of the Virgin Mary, a throwback to a time when it didn't matter that Christian symbols were on buildings as decoration. Just a lovely setting.

I like the window boxes. What bursts of cheer they are!

The diners must feel blessed. :-)

Pretty restaurant facade. I love the pops of colour that the flowers give to the building.

VP said...

Even there you have some 'Madonnina'...

I keep on saying this but I love the outdoor seating you have in France! Lovely :D
