Paris Photo Print Greeting Cards, Roisin Grace

Send some love with my new collection of greeting cards

New Greeting Card section here!  As you may already know from one of my previous posts, I have just opened up my very own Etsy shop full of photo prints from around Paris and beyond! And now, I have just launched my first collection of greeting cards! All the photos are professionally printed at premium quality, and then hand-mounted by myself onto cards. For those who know me, I am obsessed about all things stationary. But I also understand and appreciate the importance of a hand-written note. Whether it be a postcard to detail your travels, or a simple greeting card to say hello to a loved one – there’s nothing more special than sending or receiving a hand-written letter. Therefore, I hope that my cards will be of use to many of you out there, as I use them often myself. Writing a quick note to someone is so simple and effortless, yet this goes a long way to show people how much you value their friendship and love. So what are you waiting for!? …

Roses in Blossom in Palais Royale Jardin, Paris

June roses at Le Jardin du Palais Royal

The Palais-Royal is one of my favourite places in Paris. Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Palais-Royal Jardin offers visitors the chance to take a break and enjoy the surroundings. In this elegant courtyard, one almost feels transported back into one of the many 18th century country gardens – with its symmetrical hedging and decorative fountain. There’s also something very captivating about the Palais-Royal Jardin. With every season, the Jardin seems to transform into a new and different version of itself. Having been there in both winter and spring this year (I will be blogging about Spring soon – better late than never), coming back and wandering around in the summer was almost like stepping into another new dimension of this exquisite garden. Welcoming those to the jardin, are a variety of beautiful full-blossom roses and various other flowers. I couldn’t resist taking a few photos of this delightful scene! Whether you want to go for a walk, or just relax by the central fountain, a visit to the Palais-Royal …

Summer in Montmartre, Paris

Roses at Sacré-Cœur, Montmartre

Summer has truly arrived here in Paris, which means that not only is it beautiful sunny weather but it is also the perfect time to go exploring around the city! Last week I headed to the 18th arrondissement, to the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur in Montmartre, and had a wonderful afternoon wandering the streets. Whilst there, it was hard not to be impressed by the stunning array of roses that have blossomed. Located in the Square Louise Michel Park, these gorgeous flowers welcome those heading up towards the Church. You can never have too many photos of flowers, right?  

Notre-Dame Cathedral and Cherry blossom, Paris in Spring

The blossom of Notre-Dame

Just when you thought Paris couldn’t get any more beautiful,  it can. Surrounding Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Square Jean XXIII is in full bloom. So after school one day I could not resist paying a little visit to attempt to capture the charm of the scene. I have never really been a massive fan of the colour pink, but I think spending my Spring in Paris has totally made me change my mind. Don’t forget, you can view all the photos that I took here on my Flickr account: https://www.flickr.com/photos/roisingrace/sets/72157651966672755/ 

Paris Blossom, Spring

Spring has sprung, Printemps à Paris so far

There is something magical and dreamy about Paris in Spring. With the magnolia trees coming into bloom, and the dark grey clouds transforming to open blue skies, I think it’s safe to say Printemps officially arrived this Easter weekend. With the beautiful weather over the last few days, I have been trying as much as possible to make the most of this fantastic weather, and so when my friend Kate invited me to go to some of Paris’ Jardins to view the exquisite flowers I jumped at the chance. Therefore, the last few days have involved exploring number of Jardins including the Jardin des Tuileries, Jardin des Plantes, Jardin de Musée Rodin, Square René Viviani and the Jardin Medieval de Cluny. We both decided that you probably cannot have too many flower photos, and so I’ve attempted to select some of my favourites so far. Overall, I have endeavoured to capture the dreamy and romantic essence that one gets when viewing all these beautiful flowers.
