Why is it des fleurs and not des fleures? As i understand it, flowers are feminine.
Ths singular is - une fleur
the plural is - des fleurs
I know it can seem strange but 'fleur' doesn't have an -e at the end but it is feminine.
Take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson on basic colours which include 'noir' -
Noyer is a walnut tree and I have no experience of it being used as a colour.
Noisette can be a noun and a colour, hazelnut ( applied to eyes for instance) and like marron ( brown) is invariable ( doesn't change in number or gender) when used as a colour.
Hope this helps!
Could you say a word about noyer/noir/noisette please? Even after looking in the dictionary I’m not really getting the distinction, although I can see it’s something to do with m/f & sin/plu.
