Florist wardrobe...

During the cold Winter months,
The flowers in the New York supermarkets stand outside
and are protected by plastic curtains,like these.
In the warmer seasons ,and in Summer temperatures
like we had this week end, straw curtains become in fashion!!!

Pendant les durs mois d'hiver,
Les fleurs ,vendues dans les petites epiceries,sont a l'exterieur,
mais protegees par ces rideaux de plastique.
Quand les temperatures deviennent plus clémentes,
ou estivales, comme celles que nous avons eu ce weekend,
le plastique devient demodé et remplacé par des stores de paille!!!

on a l'impression que l'on cache une surprise. Les stores de paille sont plus sympathiques a voir.

Rich colours! Very appealing to the eye!

As-tu soulevé les rideaux?

Peter April 27, 2009 at 4:33 AM  

Sans doute nécessaire, mais un peu dommage. A Paris on ne le fait pas (ou peu). Des temperatures un peu moins extrèmes sans doute!

les stores de paille font plus estival ... ;-)

Am currently a victim (since last Thursday...) of internet havoc, so I haven't been checking blogs!

I love your flower and your current post! It's spring here, but cold.

Ici c'est le marchand de légumes qui se protège ainsi du froid.

It's all about fashion, one day you're putting that thin white cloth or a cloche on your veggies to keep them safe from a frost, and the next day you're setting up shade cloth for your spinach since it's too hot too soon.
I never gave much thought to the plastic greenhouse walls at the markets and florists until this post-- both the plastic and the bamboo is much appreciated!

I like the second picture since it represents warmer weather, which has finally arrived. Let's hope it stays warm.

Deux atmosphères si différentes mais parfaites toutes les deux.

Cezar and Léia April 27, 2009 at 5:43 PM  

Both pictures are fantastic!
Beautiful flowers season!

Nice to see you folks up there are having a nice spring and the straw curtains can make an appearance!

Jacob April 27, 2009 at 9:39 PM  

An interesting and very colorful post! Thanks!

I adore each detail of this shot!

Il faut les chouchouter les fleurs.
Les protéger du froid puis ensuite du soleil, car la transition doit se faire en douceur.
Ce week-end nous avons enfin eu le temps de sortir nos jardinières et potiches de la serre.

Have you put the bicycle there? :-) It's the perfect match!

The seceond one is captured at the precise moment. It's bring me back to "Agony of choice".

So there's the added benefit of shade when you're shopping? Sweet!

j'ai la berlue... le thermomètre indique 28 degrés chez vous... pas étonnant que les fleurs poussent vite.

Cergie April 29, 2009 at 4:02 AM  

Ca c'est intelligent : chez nous les plantes sont dehors dans le froid pour attirer le chaland (azalées par ex), tant pis si elles ne tiennent pas ensuite dans les appartements
