Paris: rain, art, gardens and no summer in sight, yet it looks as though the rain surges have calmed.
Security is good.
People are curious and impressed, and happy to go out and about in warmer temperatures and drier skies.
One entry to the Jardin aux Tuileries (Tuileries Garden):
The water is only partially up the stairs now.
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…
… including the gentle, fluffy sort.
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.
Strawberries grow here near this cabanna.
This shifty looking Piranha will tell you which way the wind blows, yet you may think he may be untrustworthy!
Salad at the pond.
Mood at the pond.
An abstract capture, reminding me that nature is compelled to flourish, as plant life finds a way even to spring from the lava stones.
Herbs at the palace.
A peek at the salad palace.
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 😉
