The Flower Market 2


Because the market was still empty I noticed details that would have escaped me in the hurly burly of the crowd. Take this window, for instance. I loved it; the colour of the shutters against the colour of the buiding, the way the awning which was nothing to do with the house, by the way, matches the house colour, the geraniums and just look at the painted inner shutters which I assume replace curtains. I would so love to take a peek inside...

The colors are very lovely and complement each other. How lovely that the geraniums are doing so well in their boxes.

Really pretty view. The releif details are just lovely and the inside shutter paintings are so interesting. Glad you took that early stroll and I'm just imagining a fresh croissant or roll at the market.
