Sharing Yan’s passion for flowers

Spring wild flowers in Paris Suburbs April 20, 2010

Paris is surrounded by forests and fields. The nature is never very far from the city. In one hour, we can have a completely different landscape.

 

The past weekend I walked in the forest of Val d’Oise, a community at 60 km to the West of Paris. The spring comes later there than in Paris, but a lot of wild flowers were already blossoming. Here are some pictures to share with you.

 

 

 

 

Good news : result of Floral Art Contest April 7, 2010

I’ve just been informed that I’ve got the third prize in the Floral Art Contest organised by my school Natura-Dis.

The jury found my arrangement a little high for a table center piece (that I agree) but really creative and harmonious.

I’m quite happy about the result. Anyway, this is the first contest I am in. I think I can do better next time.

I have acquired a new vase of Alessi, the famous Italian design brand.

The metal structure contains 2 plastic tubes (and I have added one more) where one can put only few flower stems.

I like this simple and modern design.
