Too early for the vendage!
this beautifully kept vineyard is a parcel of land sloping down to
Rue St Vincent in what is known as the old Montmartre
I loved looking across to the little three storied cottage
and imagining Maurice Urtillo sitting at the window
planning his next sketch of this bohemian neighborhood
or maybe Pierre Renoir - paint brush in hand -
putting the finishing touches to his "Bal au Moulin de la Galette"
or maybe even Pablo Picasso industriously working at his easel
with one eye looking out onto - Au Lapin Agile - right next door.
Some-times in Paris it's as if time has stood still!
