Pullin' weeds and pickin' stones
We are made of dreams and bones
Need a place to grow my own
'Cause the time is close at hand ~ David Mallet

An escape from the city
I took Line 1 out to the Bois de Vincennes and walked around the Parc Floral. I had thought it would just be a good space in which to stretch my legs on a long walk. Well it was that and more. Once I was in the woods and among the plants I realized how urban my life has been for the past month. Even if it IS the most beautiful city in the world, Paris is still a city. So here are some of the things I saw.
bright spring plantings
irises as far as the eye could see
all kinds of camelias
Peonies starting to come up
and an enormous cardoon encouraged by the mild Paris winter
and keeping watch over it all, a handsome peacock !
