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.

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?

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.

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).

Is this a show done every year at this time? It is so stunning & fun. Love all your pictures.

Parisbreakfasts said...

The show has not been on for 10 years!
That's all I know...

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....

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.

Parisbreakfasts said...

Oh I had no idea!
I went back yesterday to see it with all the people. Still very amazing experience! Unique.

Sue said...

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!
