Happy Friday, everyone!
As promised in my previous post, here's a little sneak-peak into Cité's marché aux fleurs. If you have some spare time while in Paris, definitely check it out, but it's not the best place for flower-shopping. Everything is double the price compared to non-tourist sites, and the quality of the flowers and plants was poor, with many of them dying and drying out. So I was quite disappointed, but at least I got some eye-candy with all the pretty colors and atmosphere.
We did buy a couple of things, I'll take a few pics later on, and Frenchie (also the designated bag-carrier of the day) picked out some seeds he's going to plant in our little Parisian-balcony-rooftop-"garden" (this sentence could not be more misleading, but I'll post later on about our "garden").If you want to buy flowers head anywhere else outside the main tourist areas, and you'll see the prices drop dramatically. On the other side of the river, almost parallel to the marché, there is a long line of flower-boutiques, but once again, rip-off prices. So all in all, wander around the city, stay away from the main boulevards and you'll find a ton of less-expensive and inspiring flower-boutiques.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
