Paris: Glorious Seine, Full of Herself

Paris: rain, art, gardens and no summer in sight, yet it looks as though the rain surges have calmed.

As we wait for summer to make an agreement to allow for her presence, according to BBC News, the Seine rose 6.1 meters above her normal level at the height of the rains last Friday, 3 June.

People are curious and impressed, and happy to go out and about in warmer temperatures and drier skies.

Surveillance is complete and all precautions are in place.

Inside the gates of the garden, the lightly overcast, gently defused afternoon light bonds with warmer temperatures to embrace visitors…

And the Exposition, Jardins Jardin aux Tuileries, truly is delightful. This is rather a micro perspective, and next week will showcase innovative garden installations, garden sculptures, cabanas, and various innovative designs from a larger perspective.

This shifty looking Piranha will tell you which way the wind blows, yet you may think he may be untrustworthy!

An abstract capture, reminding me that nature is compelled to flourish, as plant life finds a way even to spring from the lava stones.

People love the Gardens, and after so much rain it rendered such freedom and joy. The entry nearest the Place de la Concorde.

Check in next week for the friends of shifty looking Piranha: Misty the panther and Giuseppe the conductor, and perhaps others. The cabannas of house design are varied and inviting.

There is more to come from the champagne garden as well. Until next week 😉
