I took those pictures of dried and wet hydrangea at my parent’s place last week end as well. Beauty can really be everywhere and hydrangea truly are very versatile flowers and can be pretty all year long.
I wish you all a great afternoon.

A misty day in the North of France and my first Steller story

rose with rain drops A misty day in the North of France and my first Steller story decoration  Hello everyone,

I spent last week end at my parents’ place and it was very misty cold and wet. I stopped raining for a little bit on Sunday morning and I went out with my camera and my niece and took those pictures. I wanted to show you how beautiful a garden can be even a less attractive season, when everything is grey or brown and almost nothing is blooming.

first bouquet from my garden

campanula muralis 2 first bouquet from my garden flowers 2

Hello!
Ok, maybe I can’t really call it a bouquet. So let’s call it a mini-bouquet, or miniature bloom. 
Those campanula muralis are the last flowers in my garden and they look really cute in a little vase. 
My garden need a lot of work and I will see how much I will manage before the frost. It is so humid at the moment and I am alone with Ella, so it is a bit difficult to work in the garden, but I will still be planting some flowers to be able to make some bouquets with FLOWERS FROM MY GARDEN – Yeah! in the spring.

Parenthèse urbaine in Paris {urban bracket}

Hello world!
I hope you are all doing fine! I must say, my life hasn’t been that easy or glamorous since we moved to France. So much to unpack, organise etc… so many phone calls and emails with different administrations in France and in Germany, and that feeling to have forgotten a very important deadline all the time. 
On the other hand, I don’t regret the decision we made, for one second and as my husband keeps repeating: “nobody ever said, that an international move with a baby would be easy!”.
Paris is always a good idea Parenthèse urbaine in Paris {urban bracket}  lovely paris  Continue reading

we are in France!

first flowers we are in France! flowers 2

Hello everyone!

Just a quick note to tell you that we are in France now. Safe and sound. 
The move has been pretty challenging and we are still living out of boxes, but we are happy and I am trying to work out how I will arrange the garden. I found a pretty little flower shop around the corner, and I will be back on the blog more regularly soon. 
I am going to my first French blogging event in Paris this afternoon. I will be showing you the pictures on the blog and on Instagram soon.

Have a great day everyone!

Hello and good morning everyone!
I am sorry I haven’t been writing lately. My flat is full with half-empty boxes in each room, and I still have a lot of paper work to do. We will be in France in less than a week. This is my last German Tuesday! Quite weird after ten years spent here. 
As I told you here, I am giving away a beautiful vase from the very poetic German brand Räder
Here is the picture I chose, by blogger and shop owner Maria from @villastoff.
This picture was taken in a pretty café in Hamburg, and really love it when shops or cafés are decorated with creative and pretty bouquets like this one.
I would like to thank you all for participating in #flowersonmyway, over the last few months! There are already 999 pictures under this hashtag on Instagram! Youhou! 
I wish you all a great day and don’t forget to buy or pick some flowers for your home.
Elodie
