we must carry it with us or we find it not

Jardin du Luxembourg .........


Snippets from my day out at the delightful Luxembourg Gardens in Paris
Very wet and very cold but nothing that an umbrella and a sturdy pair of boots couldn't handle.

Lovely shots, even with the rain. I certainly hope the weather improves over the next few weeks or I am packing my Barbour lightweight jacket before I head out to the airport :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Was it in the fall? I'm wondering about all of the leaves on the ground and in the water. Looks cold, but great details.

Paulita:- yes this pic was taken last fall on a very wet day but Paris is beautiful in all seasons.

Such a lovely place, even in the rain. On a visit to Paris several years ago we stayed near the Luxembourg Gardens. I woke up early because of jet lag and went for a walk, hoping to wander through the gardens. However, I was up too early and just peered through the fences. Sadly, I never got back. One day, I'll return there.

Dianne said...

Lorrie:- yes you must go back ....everytime I visited Paris it was on my list of "things to do" but it was only this last visit I actually got there. It's a real delight

Hi Dianne,

Gorgeous photos of the Luxembourg Gardens and must put that on my list of places to visit for next time.
I agree even on a wet day in Paris can be fun with your brolly and boots.

Happy new week
hugs

I've been remembering Paris after just finishing Edward Rutherfurd's great new bestseller "Paris". Your mosaic shows why we love this city so much. Thanks for the rainy stroll and reminders.

Your pictures awaken the senses, I can smell the autumnal tang in the air, the gardens, wet leaves, a lovely place to walk in. Hope you hard gloves too.

Gorgeous pictures, the Jardin du Luxembourg does look wonderful in all moods though doesn't it?
