Balcony on the Ile St Louis, Paris
This was taken a couple of years ago during one of a series of flat hunting visits to Paris. Time was passing quickly and somewhere had to be found for my daughter to live as she spent her year abroad to study French.
The Ile St. Louis is glorious and filled with fabulous buildings at every turn, but this was way out of the price range. A simple white window box and some vivid red geraniums on a balcony – Parisians just make it all seem so effortless.
