Pigmented petals

 

These blushing roses were the highlight of my visit to see Gilles Pothier’s boutique in Paris. A World Champion florist, Pothier is as authentic, humble and generous as they come. A big man with a crushing handshake, his shop is suprisingly sweet and cosy, full of pink hydrangeas, delicate peonies and rambling roses. Flea-market flower paintings adorn the walls, giving his city customers a feeling of being in the countryside.
