Biblilotheque Forney Paris (Forney Library)

 The Hotel de Sens is a city palace in the 4th arrondissement in Paris that is now home to the Forney Library.  The palace was originally owned by the archbishops of Sens (a commune in Northern Burgundy).  The library is supposed to host an impressive decorative art and textile book collection.  I must confess I have never stepped foot inside the library.
 I am always in such awe of the library from the outside.  The building is one of the few vestiges of medieval architecture.  On my visit to Paris last spring the tulips were in full bloom.  It was just fitting that they were red.
 I am not sure if it was intentional that they would match the door.  I adore this red door.  There is a church on Rue Rivoli in the Marais that also has a large red door.  The French love their colour.  Given that it is still February I want to give you as much red in France as I can.
 Even the ladies who came here to enjoy their lunch had a splash of red.
Maybe next time I will step inside.

This is my contribution to Dreaming of France, hosted by Paulita at An Accidental Blog.

I really like the red door too. Tulips are my favorite flower, I love the way they are in among the hedges. Very pretty.
