Flower Lifestyle

Sharing Yan’s passion for flowers

My flower book (11) : Berries October 11, 2009


Many hedge plants have berries in Autumn. From my stroll along by the Seine River near Neuilly in Paris, I picked up a bundle of branches with all colors of berries which I’ve made a bouquet with.


Fruits can be as colorful as flowers, and they are the extension of flower’s life. The nature is a wonderful cycle.

 “Flower” means plant or vegetative for me, which includes flowers, leaves,  branches and even vegetables. In the nature, all can be beautiful, even the most ordinary things.


Here are pictures of garlic and lettuce taken in a morning market in Paris. I like their coulours, so smooth and juicy.
