Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Jardin du Palais Royal .......


I love how The Parisians escape to their parks and gardens
on sunny week-ends - reading a favourite book or
just taking a sun-nap as in the pic above

 


 Bordered with well manicured flower-beds and dotted with park benches
the Palais-Royal gardens are perfect for sitting and whiling away an afternoon
 before meandering over to one of the coffee shops that line the palace arcade.

It really is one of my favourite places to be in all of Paris

I love that garden too - a wonderful sanctury for Parisiennes.
For you and I, it's where we can observe them, which is such an fascinating pastime!
I love your beautiful header.

Beautiful gardens, but not in mid-winter. In the first photo the women on the left looks like she is crying. How sad surrounded by all that beauty.

Hi Dianne,

Looks like a magical place to go and rest and have a sit down.
Also neat to be able to people watch in places like this.
Happy week

Hi Dianne. I have never have the pleasure of visiting Paris. Oh my what a dream place you have shown us here.

That garden is just out of this world beautiful and your shots are marvelous.

I think the lady in the first shot is taking a little snooze while snuggled up against her hubby or boyfriend!

I love these...truly lovely!

Not suprising they 'escape to parks and gardens' seeing as they live in apa-a-a-artments sans backyards. It looks to be the future here in Melbourne too.

This is one of my favorite places in Paris, and it is perfect for people-watching, no matter the season or the weather.

I cannot imagine how you got that first shot - you are very agile!

Bises,
