Jardins, Jardin 2023

Yesterday I ate a hot air balloon ๐ŸŽˆ cookie ๐Ÿช 

Sniffed beaucoup beautiful roses ๐ŸŒน 

Tried a new perfume,

La Fleur d’oranger ๐ŸŠ from Chanel. 
Don’t these perfume touches remind you…

Of Matisse paper cutouts? They do to me ❤️

The orange ๐ŸŠ trees in the Chanel jardin

Remind me of this Winslow Homer orange ๐ŸŠ watercolor 

Yesterday I went to the annual Paris Jardins, Jardin show . 

Always 4 days in the beginning of June. How you know Summer has arrived.

I’d love this forest green summery dress..wouldn’t you?

The garden show always takes place in the Tuileries jardins. This is the 18th year and my 5th attendance 

Designed FYI by the renown French landscape designer, ANDRE LE NOTRE

The show is on through Sunday ๐Ÿ‘

A wonderful escape from city buzz & Something for everyone 

I would love a petit greenhouse Wouldn’t you?

Bouygues Immobilier gave out delicious, healthy snacks and basil seeds for your petit balcon if you have one…I wish ๐Ÿค”

You can order authentic chaises ๐Ÿช‘ from Edmond & Fils for your petit balcon

They provide all the green chaises we love ❤️ so much at the Tuileries and other parcs. 

Plus they made my miniature green chaise. 
I proudly showed the grandson my chair watercolor ✏️ ☺️ 

Fun garden coverups to protect your nice shoes from mud

I talked shop ๐ŸŽจ with flower artist, Jean-Franรงois Gaulthier from Pont Aven.

His first year at Jardins, Jardin. He’s done flower murals and even painted a harpsichord! 


I plan to attend ๐Ÿ™ if I can figure out how to get to Chaalis.

These are called la rose dentelle because of the little bites ๐Ÿฆท in the petals? Or maybe because they are lacy?

I bought peonies from the stand. 2.50 a stem ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿคธ‍♂️

You could sign up to become a fleuriste. 
I came home after 3+ hours, exhausted & happy with peonies ๐ŸŒธ to paint ๐ŸŽจ 
I put up my legs for 20 minutes & felt instantly refreshed (*my newest health tip๐Ÿ‘) 
Don’t miss out on Jardins, Jardin if you’re in Paris
Thank you PBers for all the LOVE ❤️ you showed the Paris breakfast post. 15,000 views! More cups of coffee ☕️ coming up ๐Ÿ‘

If you like ❤️ this post, you can support Parisbreakfast by 
buying my letters ๐Ÿ’Œ and watercolors from Paris ❤️
                                ๐ŸŒธHave ๐ŸŒธ Happy ๐ŸŒธ weekend ๐ŸŒธ

    Yes! I would love one of those mini-greenhouses. The more ornate the better. It would become my tea house. A small table, two chairs (Edmond & Fils?), flowery china, lots of flowers (preferably peonies!). Heaven. Lars

    Yikes on getting to Chaalis! RER D to Fosses…but then what??
    Is Fosses even big enough to have a taxi to get you to the Chรขteau??
    Even Chaalis website ONLY gives driving (by car) directions. ๐Ÿ™ Chelmsley

    I go NOWHERE when it’s hot…just can’t tolerate the heat anymore. I try to get everything accomplished during the cool morning hours.
    BUT, I’d brave the heat for Jardin Jardin!
