Roses and More Roses ...

For something completely different, today we attended a flower arranging course, called Roses and Emotions, at the "Bourgeon" florist which is located in the 1st arrondissement, just near the Louvre. 
Formerly a royal stables for the Palais Royale, the flower shop is tiny with its class room accessed via a very challenging spiral staircase !








     There were eight varieties of roses offered in pink, red, yellow and peach tones ...


















                                     See what I mean about those stairs ?

                                                 Cousine, cousine !!
 Looking rather proud of ourselves as the class was conducted entirely in French, we were the first finished AND the teacher thought our bouquets looked OK !

     Back at our apartment we were well and truly ready for a welcome evening apero !
