Au Nom de la Rose

 Mon confit de Pétales de roses,watercolor, 9" x 11"
Every Paris visit I try to stop by Au Nom De La Rose.
Yesterday Lynn reminded me of an old watercolor I'd done on Au Nom. Time to look at roses again, especially now that they are out there everywhere you look... And who does roses better than Au Nom de la Rose in Paris? Maybe they're the best rose sellers on the planet. Where else can you feel like you're invited into someone's private garden while still standing in the street?And their prices aren't extra-terrestial either. Oh the ROSES!
Multi-colored bouquets... Are these peonies mixed in..? Breathe in the scent.
BONJOUR PARIS!

    No, not peonies -

    RANUNCULUS!

    One of my absolute favorites! Gorgeous aren't they?

    Sincerely,

    Heather :)

  4. I love Peonies and Roses and Dahlias. If ever you are in Seattle, check out the Dahlias in the Botanical Garden and at Pike's Market. They are absolutely spectacular.

  7. Hi,
    I think those flowers pictured with the roses are called ranunculus.

    Carole, the photo where you query "are these peonies" - they are not. Just a different variety of roses (more like a David Austin climbing rose. The scent of these roses is intoxicating!

    Salut!

    Je viens de rentre de la France. Il pleuvait pendant trois semaines, mais cela ne m’empecher pas de prendre plus que 800 photos, surtout les roses ! Voila quelques prises de Giverny. Le jardin de Monet m’épate chaque fois que j’y vais !

    Oh lucky day! Caloo calais! THREE new posts! Well, new to me! So sorry to fall so far behind.
    As to the debate: ranunculus or old-fashioned rose, I fall into the rose camp. The pink one looks like my Reign de Saba when it just starts to open. And, after all, it is at Au Nom de la Rose. Occam's razor.
