"I don't know how Georgianna does it. She manages to make Paris, already the most beautiful city in the world, appear even more charming, more elegant and more beautiful than it already is. When she says '...this book is my love letter to the French capital, an unapologetically romantic celebration of her abundant floral charms', I couldn't agree more. This is a love letter that must be opened and enjoyed and displayed on your desk or table, some place close at hand in order that you may return to it often. Paris in Bloom is filled with a veritable carpet of pinks and whites, pastels and green portraits that make me let out an audible sigh of joy. This book can re-inspire you to believe that yes, life really is quite beautiful."
--Doni Belau, Author of Paris Cocktails & Founder of Girls' Guide to Paris
If anything would make you want to visit Paris, walk the streets of one of the most romantic cities in the world and linger in its avenues, or sit outside its courtyards and sigh at the design of the grand palaces, then this is the book that will do it. Destined to become a classic of its type, Paris in Bloom is Georgianna Lane's love letter to Paris and to flowers.
