La Rochelle in Bloom

Jeudi, 3 juillet.

More so than anywhere I've visited so far this summer, La Rochelle is simply bursting with beautiful flowers! It seems like every house and front yard is full of beautiful blooms. Unlike other cities, where bursts of color are confined to window boxes, flowers grow all over here ... even peeking out of cracks in the sidewalk!

Anyone know the name of this flower? It's everywhere!

The further you get into La Rochelle's residential area (where my AirBNB is located), the more lovely and numerous the flowers become. I love the contrast between the whitewashed houses and bright -- usually pink -- blooms.
