This is the second half of my Ile-de-la-Cité trip!
The Metro station Cité dropped me right on the edge of the flower market, and directly in front of St. Chapelle. I was pleasantly surprised by the flower market because I had forgotten about its existence, and because I love anything to do with flowers.
Not only were there flowers neatly arranged in rows and bunches, but also pots, lanterns, and garden accessories strewn about in the most charmingly chaotic way. I’ve heard that this area also becomes a bird market on certain days… I’ll definitely have to see what that’s all about. I mean, how many people can there possibly be who buy birds every week? In any case, here are the photos:
I hope this flower market stays open year-round! I would like to accumulate a handful of different types of flowers with which to adorn my flat.
Speaking of flowers – I hope to visit Giverny (Monet’s home and gardens) on Saturday, so expect an abundance of Flora.
