Bouquet of English Roses and Ranunculus in Paris by Georgianna Lane

Hello, dear friends! I hope you are well!

I commissioned several bouquets of roses, including David Austin English roses, from one of my favorite Parisian flower shops to use in various photo shoots in the Paris apartment I rented. I shared a sneak peak last week but with winter still enveloping many of you, I thought that seeing more of the images might brighten your day. In the last few images I included some luscious pink ranunculus which were just starting to appear in the markets.

I’m home now, with a few weeks to prepare before I head back to Europe. Meanwhile, it does my heart so much good to see the narcissus poking up in my own sweet garden.

Many thanks for your wonderful comments on the Paris posts. They, and you, mean the world to me!

Sending love and wishing you a beautiful weekend!

  • So beautiful! Your pictures make me want to grow roses. I ponder the catalogs after you post. Soon I will have room.

  • Wow. These are gorgeous photos, Georgiana. I just went through your Paris posts and the photos are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing them. Exquisite!

  • Dear Georgianna, I love the soft lavender and peach colors, especially nice with the purple velvet.
    I am so looking forward to seeing your woodland garden. In the past years it has been a fairy land.

  • I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to see these here, Georgianna. They make me think of spring, which with the most recent snowfall seems very far away.

    Welcome back, and thank you so much for sharing so much of your trip here.

    Have a great weekend! xo.

    So, so lovely! Bet your time in Paris was delightful, and now another trip to Europe on the horizon. Oh, I wish I could tag along….

  • Dear Georgianna, what a lovely bunch of English Roses, omg!!! and that purple couch with the roses and the gate… ahhh pure bliss!!
    sending you lots of hugs

  • Absolutely spectacular…and oh, how I love that purple chair! Thank you so much for sharing…yes, they truly did cheer up my chilly winter’s day. :)

    February 7, 2014
  • I’m seriously drooling over those gorgeous blooms, and the fact that you shot them in France!

    February 7, 2014
  • I always feel like such a broken record when I comment on your posts…everything is just so stunning and gorgeous beyond words! I don’t know if this is even possible, but it seems as time goes by that your photography is just getting better and better with each passing year. Thank you always for sharing! xoxo

  • Such beautiful and colorful bouquet of roses on a couch in the most wonderful colour. Love the roses and love the couch! Your second picture is my favorite!
    Now I’ll have to scroll back to your previous posts because somehow I think I must have missed them. So you were in Paris again? You must know that city in and out by now ;) And another trip to Europe planned, wow, so exciting, allthough weatherwise, I hope things get a bit, no, a lot better by then. This is not the place you want to be right now. Our garden is flooded completely. Narcissus and snowdrops are peeking above the muddy water, not a pretty photoworthy sight I must say. How has winter been treating you in your part of the US? Whenever I see pictures of the Palouse, I have to think of you because you were the one getting me acquainted with that specific beautiful region and somehow I now keep tumbling onto landscapes from the Palouse when visiting the internet, very weird. Bye for now, hope you have a wonderful time preparing for your next visit to Europe and have a good time here.

  • Dear Georgianna, your roses are just perfect! Even ranunculuses are very much in the mood! I couldn’t tell them at first sight but for your pointing out on this!
    Have a happy European trip! :)

    Your photos are so beautiful I can almost smell the old English roses!

    You are not helping me… I have a week to decide if I will take a supervisory position at work… more time in the office. My inner child (soul) now wants to rent an apartment in Europe and fill it with flowers!

    February 8, 2014
  • I know I could never express in words what your photographs do for my soul dear G. But I know if you could see my face as I view them, you would know. Thank you so much for the beauty you bring into the world!!!!!!!
    sending hugs…

    February 8, 2014
  • Simply stunning, especially against the royal purple of the chair. I love a hand tied bouquet too, hard to do when it’s that big but the best way to display flowers I think.
    Heading back to Europe so soon? You are so busy G.
    Hopefully you two will be together to enjoy a romantic Valentine’s Day.

    February 8, 2014
  • Ah, Georgianna! It’s a funny thing but your words echoed my thoughts as I was looking at these images – they do a heart good! Quite seriously!! Thank you! =)

    xxo

    (Oh, they really do! Winter is still lovely but it is seriously stretching on. I can almost feel and smell these roses! Gives hope! ;) )

    February 8, 2014
  • LOVE all your photos, dear Georgianna. You are such a colossal talent! Thank you for brightening my day in the cold of winter.

    Oh, what it seems wonderful to be in such a wonderful apartment in Paris and take photos. This piece of furniture and its color together with the flowers is just perfect. ♥ Linnea

  • I can only come up with one word – and I guess that says it all:)- WOW!!!

    February 9, 2014
  • Dearest sweet G, these roses photos make me smile!! I really adore that last photo of gorgeous shades of pink!! You are home in time for Valentine’s week! Have a good rest and relax days at home! Love to you!

  • Beauuutiful flowers and photos! I didn’t have the composition / calm enough to take any “staged” photos at all when I was there – when I travel, I tend to hurry around to see as much as possible and basically took lots of photos outdoors and of architecture…

    February 10, 2014
  • Appreciated these images more than I can even say. The purple chair is quite a dramatic backdrop for some of these images. Fantastic!

  • A Garden of Threads

    These are just what this flower starved gardener needed, a gorgeous bouquet of roses. I loved every one, thank you for sharing them. Narcissus are peeking out in your garden!!!! lucky you, they will be weeks away in mine. We have about 3 feet of snow to melt before that wondrous occurrence.

    I hope all is well with your family and you and D have a lovely Valentine’s Day.

  • I can see that I have missed a few of your posts lately – that I now have enjoyed looking through. Always a delight. Lucky you being able to photograph such gorgeous roses in beautiful Paris. Enjoy your time at home and the small delights in your garden at this time of year.
    Have a lovely week!
