Le rescapé

The intersection of Avenue de Saint-Cloud and rue Carnot. This is the one flower market stall that is open in August!

That's nice! I can almost smell the flowers. I hope they don't wilt.


40° in Paris? That's pretty hot almost Texas hot. Le temps ici est toujours très chaud en été. However today seems to be the start of a cooling trend. It's only 36° right now and the forecast calls for temps in the low to mid 30°'s next week. You can keep the heat for awhile. :)

Rich and vibrant flowers you have displayed here. Seasonable floral market is something interesting. Flower festival day perhaps?

I love the Geraniums.

Bright summer flowers sure add life to a city, don't they?

I never thought of Bach when I composed today's photo. In fact, I still don't think of Bach when I think about that photo.

J'ai eu du mal à trouver une belle plante fleurie pour ma maman à des prix abordables... j'en aurais surement trouvé une chez ce marchand de fleurs.

The one open stall saves the day.
It would be colorless without it.

Il est rempli de belles fleurs ; leurs affaires doivent faire bien en aout.

Five flights in lawyer shoes? That's way too hard! You need to find a mansion with just one floor!

This is such a beautiful corner, it would be great to walk by this every day. As James wrote, you are Texas hot. I was there this week, it was 40+ C all 3 days.

Sidewalk flower stands offer so much aroma for nothing. Nice.

Ah, I love this cheery spot of color and fragrance in the midst of the city :^)

And isn't it lovely?

From what I saw, Lisbon is cooler than Paris at the moment. I know how much you love the heat! LOL! Just kidding... :-)

Business should be good for the one stall that remains, unless it is too hot for people to be out walking around.

Really Ciel, is it 37C there in Versailles, I just can't imagine that! How do you like it, do you enjoy it when it's so hot? These beautiful geraniums will like it much more I bet.

J'espère qu'il arrose bien ses fleurs, parce que purée, ça cogne!

It's beautiful! I just got back from the garden centre. Wish they had such a nice selection. It's mums season now here in Canada. Makes me sad to think the summer is drawing to a close.

It's beautiful and hopefully thriving as the only flower stall around! Amazing ghost town feeling with these recent photos...
