Polly-Vous Francais

Accordion music? Uh-oh. We have to talk.

Hey, thanks for showing my dream condo, which I forgot to include. Maybe someone will sell (in my dreams) after reading your post. I just love the idea of swimming laps under the stars, 23 storeys above the streets of Paris.


I love Paris in the spring with all the flowers. Two of my favorite flower memories are in the 5th. Check them out if you have time and aren't already aware of them. The first is the huge cherry tree, as large as an oak, in the Jardin des Plantes. The other is a huge wisteria vine climbing several stories of a stone residence on rue Cuvier. We were staying at the Hotel Jardin des Plantes, before it became a Tim & pricey, on one of our visits many years ago. While waiting for our cab to the airport, my husband and I decided to take a quick walk to savor our last few moments in Paris. We went around the corner and bam! This beautiful wall of wisteria. A week at this hotel and we had not walked this particular street. Paris is like that, full of wonderful surprises and lasting memories. Thanks for rekindling one of them with the mention of wisteria is that pretty little park.


hi, I just happened to stumble upon your blog in my search for all things Parisian (I'm visiting for the first time next month!!), and I would just like to say that I very much enjoy all your pictures. The flowers here are lovely, and the blue door series of photos were gorgeous.
PS Wisteria grows all over the place where I live, but of course, I'm from a rural area so maybe it's just that I'm out in the country.
