A to Z Quelque Fleurs de France (Some Flowers of France)

A to Z Challenge HERE

Fleurs = Flowers in English

Now I’m not going to try and name all of these beauties. Some of them I do know their names in English, but some I don’t, so I will just let you peruse and enjoy these lovely flowers of different shapes, sizes and kinds that I found during visits to France.

Flowers are a kind of symbol in France. Towns are named “Villes Fleuris” Flowered Towns, in honor of how many flowers, plants, landscaping they invest in. The level that some places take this to is astounding and so easy on the eyes. Talk about “eye candy”, flowers are generally found all over the place, depending on the time of year, and location.
So, amusez-vous bien!(Have a good time!)

Peonies in Blagnac almost the size of my head!

  1. Beautiful photos! Those flowers are great, and yes, we like to have a lot around us in the streets ;)) Having the label "Ville fleurie" and 3 flower signs (label comes from 1 to 3 flowers) is very important and a challenge for some cities and their inhabitants. This street sign sit proudly just below the name at the entrance of the city or village.
    Hugs from France ;)

    How fun that you took all these beautiful photos in many different places - really gives a great representation of what France has to offer when it comes to flowers!

    Loved that one with the Wisteria... I wonder if the two homeowners are small :) I'd be hitting my head everytime I went out or came home!!

    1. I know what you mean Mark! But it isn't actually as low as it seems in the photo, even though, there are a lot of short French people!

  3. How beautiful. It is the season of flowering trees here in Atlanta and those with allergies are suffering. I wonder if flower pollen is as powerful as tree pollen.

  4. All these flowers look stunning - love your pictures.
