Paris: Pretty In Pink

One of the delights of seeing Paris in the spring are the pink clouds that drift into the city in the form of blushing ruby chestnut blossoms. Like pink cotton candy growing on trees.


Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you're feeling in the pink as we start a new week! XO


  1. "Like cotton candy growing on trees"? Now if THAT phrase isn't capable of putting a smile on someone's face, I don't know what is! Thanks for all of the happiness in this post to get our Mondays off to a great start, Jeanne!

  2. It's pouring buckets here so these pictures were a real pick me up. Thank you for sharing some of your trip and I love your phrase of cotton candy!

    Enjoy your day!

  3. Lovely!! Yes, miserable day here so this is a welcome respite from the rain!!

  4. Pink AND Paris??? The perfect girly combination...lovely photos! :) Looking forward to seeing you tonight!

  5. Jeanne-
    This is one gorgeous post! So many gorgeous images here. I love these blooms, and I don't know if I have ever seen chestnut blooms.
    Happy Monday.

  6. Your cheerful shots are exactly what we all needed, on this rainy Seattle morning. Merci, Jeanne. I bet you looked outside and decided you HAD to do something about "la grisaille" didn't you? :-) Bonne semaine. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  7. I think we could all use a little pink in our week, Veronique! It looks like "la grisaille" will be here all week. Dommage! Hope you find some color in your life in spite of the weather! XO

  8. Oh Jeanne I love this!! I am always feeling "in the pink"! Love your description of those pretty pink flowers. And, your photographs even more.

    Hope you're week is off to a great start. Today in NY it feels like Seattle! :)

  10. Jennifer, I think you absolutely should book it! Paris is always a good idea, but I think it's an absolutely splendid idea for a milestone birthday escape! Hope you go for it! XO

  11. cotton candy, yes, please! growing on trees? now that could inspire a children's book, oui?

    smiles to you.
