Marché aux Fleurs

The covered but otherwise outdoor flower market
on the Ile de la Cité has been in operation
(except on Sunday, when it becomes a bird market)
for 204 years.  I don't know how these primroses
survive—I shot them on a snowy morning in February—but
what a wonderful way to brighten a dreary winter day! 


  1. Beautiful! I've walked around this area several times but I never paid much attention to the flowers.

  2. Lovely, I've enjoyed the flower market on several visits.
