Jardins, Jardin 2018

This was my second time at Jardins, Jardin, the annual horticultural 4-day May event in the Tuileries gardens
What a glorious day. What a glorious event. Plan to attend your next Paris trip in. May SVP.
Immerse yourself in garden decorations and projects like these clever sheds.
Everyone needs a greenhouse. Its supposed to be healthy to hang out with plants.
Hanging out in a bubble/bulle? Not sure that would suit me.
The creme de la creme of garden sheds. Put it on your terrasse. Plus a photographic Paris skyline including the Eiffel tower.
Not a shed, but a facsimile of Chanel's flower gardens in Grasse. A chance to enhale No. 5 and her other scents
Or buy some herbs for your window sill.
I wouldn't mind a divider wall of flower pots in my tiny chambre de bonne...
If you love watering cans too, please raise your hand
I don't know what this is but intriguing none the less.
Supermarche Franprix provided free tomates cerises and nectarines.
You could munch in the many pique-nique areas provided
Chairs supplied by French garden supplier giant, Truffaut.
You could feel the heat in the Tuileries after you left the cool enclave of JARDINS JARDIN.
I got lots of garden goodies to put in the June pique-nique Paris map and letter, once they are done...ahem
Let me know if you'd like to receive Paris mail. Bonne week PBers!

    In my garden shed is the large green plastic watering can I brought from Paris around 1990. It just fit in my suitcase and was the perfect place to pack my laundry!

    Again, merci beaucoup for each PB and especially for this new one. Now I’m looking forward to the June map, letter and goodies.

    1. Who needs a house or an apartment when you can live in a shed?!
