Tulips from Paris

Tulips are usually associated with Holland, but they’re also in bloom all over Paris.

They’re around tourist attractions like the Eiffel Tower, and in tiny residential parks like Place Dupleix  and Square Lamartine (where you can refill water bottles for free, with mineral-rich water our elderly neighhbour heartily recommends for making soup and tea).

Tulips grace the grand gardens of Paris, like the Jardin du Luxembourg.

Even the little roundabout in our quartier is in bloom.

We leave for England on the Eurostar tomorrow.  I miss Paris already, and look forward to our next return.

  3. I’d really like visit Paris in the Spring.

    I’ve been three times …twice in December and January for New Years Eve and as you know, most recently for my honeymoon last February. Although it’s lovely then…I want to see it without my coat and gloves.

    England is greening up nicely for you.
