    1. I use the picture among the lavender for my FB photo. It's amazing how many people think I'm sitting in the bluebonnets.

  2. Rose gardens do seem to be a favorite in Paris public spaces, and in the suburbs as well. Did you see the one at L'Haÿ-les-Roses? I think it's the most impressive. I wish you had specified where you took your photos.

    1. Most of the roses are from Rodin's Garden. The sunflowers and lavender are from Provence. Some of the others are from the Gardens at Versailles.

  9. Great shows of the beautiful roses. I'm not sure about the advice to sit amongst them though. I think most Parisians would frown on that, after all, they guard the grass like it's precious. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme
