Icing on the Cake [a Paris Illustré blog post]

Here’s the latest post to my new blog Paris Illustré, featuring my illustrations of Paris (and some other spots).  I hope you’ll go have a look and enjoy!

On top of Paris’s already incredible beauty, florists add their vibrant displays to catch the passing eye.  Who could resist.  On May 1, lilies of the valley appear everywhere, like pumpkins to our Halloween.  I find their tiny bell-shaped blossoms enchanting and will invariably indulge.  Once I pressed and dried a few sprigs in an attempt to preserve the magic but it turns out they are more alluring pre-pressed.
