Les Animaux de Paris


I keep seeing all manner of

This vache/cow in the fromagerie/cheese store on rue Montorgueil was busy wahching the passing ladybug. It wasn't just me noticing Paris animals...

Look! Cows on the window curtains too.

Back on rue Montorgueil, a pedestrian street,




this restaurant has snails attached everywhere. And rightly so, since they are the main focus of the menu. macarons
Another cow grazing just down from my hotel on rue de Seine in a Fromagerie..
animals in Paris, not just birds. A mom is walking with her little girl, who is walking her coccinelle/ladybug. The red wings flap as it follows her...

  1. Dear Carol,
    It´s not a surprise to find vegetable&animal motifs everywhere i Paris:just one of the resources for XIX century Art(Art nouveau,Naturalism,Art Decó..).
    As nice as usual.

  2. Did you buy a ladybug?
    Please tell me you did not eat an escargot!
    Well unless the escargot was in Chocolate, they are plentiful in France!
    Darling photos Carol!

    Ladybug! Ladybug!
    Fly away home.
    Your house is on fire.
    And your children are all gone.
    All except one,
    And that’s little Ann,
    For she’s hiding under
    The frying pan.

  4. He saw an animal, up on a hill
    Chewing up grass, until she had her fill
    He saw milk comin out, but he didn't know how.
    "Ah, think I'll call it a cow"
