"Wild flowers"


I will revert with some more posts from Italy, but first I wanted to report about "today" and Paris – which this blog should after all basically be about…

We have had some very hot days and as well people...


... as birds in "my" park were in clear need of shadow. 


Fortunately, water from the Wallace fountains was available. 



I’m pleased to see that the Paris parks nowadays often have a “corner” where more or less wild flowers are allowed to grow. This is also the case with “my” little park.




Butterflies and bees enjoy…



















… as do some other insects.

Peter, although the formal gardens are very nice, there is nothing like the casual appearance of wildflowers to make you feel "at home." A belated welcome back to you!

Bises,

P,
"Your" park in at the top of my list you know. I don't care if it's freezing, we will have a look around! I have enjoyed your photos of this place for many years. It's time for me to see it for myself.

Rendons hommage à Jean Louis Auguste Commerson, qui publia en 1851 les Pensées d’un emballeur, où l’on trouve : « Si l’on construisait actuellement des villes, on les bâtirait à la campagne, l’air y serait plus sain. »

Tout en habitant à Paris, tu peux quand même photographier les fleurs, plantes et volatiles de "ton parc" Moi, d'ici il m'est difficile de faire des photos du Canal Saint Martin et de la Tour Eiffel.

Great pictures, Peter, and I agree with you about the beautiful wild life.
