54-Flowers – Paris, France

The French love their flowers. In every large Metro station and on hundreds of street corners, there are flower shops. These shops fill the air with the aroma of fresh cut flowers and are a wonderful distraction to many of the other smells of a city. During the evening rush hour on the Metro, you can see many people taking fresh cut flowers home. These flowers are all long-stemmed and are always carried upside-down.
