Since it’s drearily raining here in Warsaw, I thought I’d bounce back to Paris – a city that’s romantic even when it is raining!

During our last trip, I  realized that Parisians seem to j’adore flowering window boxes! Everywhere I walked in Paris, I stumbled upon vivid red geraniums spilling over the window boxes.
Geraniums in shades of hot pink, red and white seemed to be the most popular flower.
Of course, I started noticing so many of these window boxes, so I thought, “Hmm…I bet these would make a nice photo post.” So here you go. I selected 12 of my favorite photos for this special French blog post.

Besides geraniums, I did spy a few window boxes featuring elegant roses behind the wrought iron fencing on the balconies.
As I walked around Paris, I wondered what kind of people lived behind these well-maintained window boxes? Perhaps a young French couple, an older mademoiselle or a kind old gentleman? I wonder.
I remember taking this photo of window boxes in the Les Halles neighborhood.
What do you think?

Au revoir!
BTW, Here’s another blog post I found online featuring Paris Window Boxes.

Lovely Post! I have heard a lot about the beautiful Window boxes in Paris. I always wanted to visit France with my spouse & get our stay planned in a hotel with alluring window boxes. Luckily, we are planning to apply for France Visa online next month. Hoping having a great time in Paris!
