Visual Caffeine on Streets of Paris

No matter how many times I stroll the streets of Paris, I am always amazed by the quantity of visual inspiration I receive. From the beautiful way in which ordinary shopkeepers arrange their vitrines, or store windows, to the graffiti and posters that temporarily paper the walls of ancient buildings. But the florists seem to have a special gift–not just for the variety and abundance of plants and flowers they offer, but for the extraordinary way they display them on view either through the windows or on the sidewalks in front. Here are a few of my recent favorites:

Fruits, flowers, and grasses in the Marais

gourds
Autumn and Spring share the stage together

shelves
How could I pack this in my suitcase?

mushrooms
These mushrooms are arranged like a museum exhibit–yes they are for sale

Just for fun: Maybe he winked one too many times at passers-by?
