Photo Du Jour : Balcony

This balcony on a house in Saint-Aignan has seen better days. But the flowers are blooming and it has a kind of shabby charm.

There is obviously somebody living here since the shutters are open. Most places that are empty are shut up tight. At first I thought the flowers were just growing out of cracks, but they are actually in little pots.


  1. When you think people pay fortunes to create this look!!lol

    i would gladly sit on the balcony for hours with a café au lait et croissant just to breathe French air...maybe I would add Brie!

    Just reading about your special night with a special star! Thanks for the link. Congratulations for your passport. It does us proud doesn't it to belong to a country? As good as having a mother!

    A bit late with everything. Eye surgery (cataract) gone bad. I looked at blogs but had problems commenting on all.

    Tell Callie I totally agree. I don't like worms of any kind. Even served with the best sauce...

  3. mark, don't they, though?! Sounds like a business opportunity!

    claudia, here's to a quick recovery!

  4. I adore this photo -- I just tried to catch a balcony from my car in a traffic jam (yes they do exist in Rodez) the other day but didn't quite have the time. I'll have to stop next time, I guess.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
