Ahhh, garden therapy. I love the rhododendron, well, actually I love it all.
Gorgeous! All in that giant conservatory? Love the gilded cloches!
What's a gilded cloches?
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).
At this time of year..I walk my humble gardens many times a day:) THRILLING to see it all and I snap away hoping to caprture the beauty of even the most subtle of blooms or greens..That picnik scene with the flowers spilling out..C'est beau!!My peonies have so many buds..:)Now that is something I would LOVE to visit.Do you see wicker trolleys on your walkabouts Carol?Love those shopping carts.
You have an AMAZING 'point of view!!!'Linda

Breath taking pictures I love peonies...What fun you are having in Paris Lynne
Oh wow, what a stunning exhibition. Such a shame that I'll miss it. This might have been your most arresting post ever Carol. Sensational. I particularly love that first picture- it's fabulous.
We loved this garden show. It was beautiful in every way.Georgia

Is this a show done every year at this time? It is so stunning & fun. Love all your pictures.
The show has not been on for 10 years!That's all I know...
Love this post! I love France and gardens, too!Jeannine
Sigh. You know it's a wonderful post when you can't pick a favorite - or a baddie in the lot!
These pictures are spectacular,Carol, and just take us on THE most beautiful garden tour!Wow!No better way to start the weekend!THANK YOU!
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....Barbara Lillian
This is beautiful!!! Do you know if it is an annual event? Thank you! BetsyP.S. I've been a fan of Paris Breakfasts for years....your posts are wonderful!!!Thank you for them
There were signs to come back next year so here's hoping!
Looks beautiful! Some really amazing shots in there, Carol.
Oh no I'm missing it in rainy Bordeaux! Butt you captured some great shots, love love.
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.
Oh I had no idea!I went back yesterday to see it with all the people. Still very amazing experience! Unique.
Oh, lovely! I like Gala apples, and smeared with peanut butter. But these are beautiful images--peonies--my favorites...sigh. Just got back from the beach to see your posts, Carol!
WOW! Grand Palais makes a grand daddy of Conservatories!Beautiful Photos!
Love hearing from you
