I’ve been to the flower market before but very quickly. The other day, I spent my time looking around the place. It’s three or four long greenhouses down the block and across the street from Notre Dame in Île de Cité.
It’s the kind of place that’s fun to browse and the kind of place I could easily spent a lot of money – then again, that doesn’t really narrow it down at all, does it? There are beautiful, albeit overpriced, Provençal linens, lavender sachets, baskets, ceramics and kitsch galore.
There was one small funny moment – two men arguing fervently (do the French ever argue less than fervently!?!) about the gentlemens’ parrot. Not quite sure of the outcome, as I had to leave before there debate was done!
