I'm now on the lookout for Aixoise emigres like this gal in the Metro. Mille Red Riding Hood is a long way from home. Hope she doesn't meet M. Loup/wolf...
There was TONS of red at L'Art du Jardin in Grand Palais - Merci's red car loaded with complimentary colored greens...
A red tomato/carrot bouquet...
And a red 'flower' chair at the show. Just don't sit on it. You'll crush it!
Mom and son look-alikes toute en rouge

Though it seems odd that a 'Keep Calm' sign would be in tomato red?
Red trench coats are out in full force in Paris. It poured today...
Friend Patricia looks swell in front of this turquoise wall.
Provencal strawbs last night.
And sighted today the 1st fraise du bois/wild strawberries of the season at Maison Stohrer on rue Montorgueil
Just a touch of red will do in Paris. Looking very rouge et noir with this smidge of a red skirt and black boots.
