L'Art du Jardin















If you're in Paris don't miss the spectacular L'Art du Jardin at the Grand Palais until 3 June. Words can not describe the beauty or creativity. C'est comme ca.

    2. The last picture - I believe a cloche is the metal cone that covers a plate when it's served to keep the food hot (and make a more dramatic presentation).

    That picnik scene with the flowers spilling out..C'est beau!!
    My peonies have so many buds..:)

    I'd be there if I was in Paris......I love Rhododendrons, that lovely pink looks like the hue you use in your paintings !
    maybe that's a sign for you to do a little something.?
    Enjoy your weekend , they say we have some sun coming....

  17. We went to this yesterday and it was indeed lovely. I particularly liked that you got in for free if you had a "flower" first name (for a girl) or, for a boy, if your name was Olivier.
