Saturday Photo: The Pink Bicycle

For several summers the folks who live on the corner of Lajoie and Pratt in the Outremont district of Montreal have filled the paniers of this bicycle with flowers. A nice combination of green things!

It probably also is a joking reference to a very popular French trilogy which takes place in the Paris of World War II, Le bicyclette bleue, which appears to have been largely inspired by Gone with the Wind. Well, it's better to have peacetime flowers than war, I think.
