    How lovely! The white wire mesh sculptures are interesting. They seem misty from the distance and in the first photo I thought they were made of acrylic. Oh, those water lilies are spectacular!

      I think they were made of wire mesh and did have mist or smoke coming from them. At first, I thought they were ghosts for Halloween but I don’t think so. Halloween is not big here and it’s a long time off.

    I love that you are visiting new places. Your lunch looked delicious. Bob would have loved Bernie’s sardine plate. The Botanical Garden photos were lovely. Good couples photo.

      Yes, it’s fun to take the challenge of finding new things which we did again today!

    I was fascinated by the ghostly mythological creatures!

      We presume they are lighted at night. This is where they have the huge jazz festivals in the summer.

    Don’t know if there could be an “ordinary” day when you are in Paris!! ( Except maybe laundry day!! ) Looks gorgeous and peaceful, what a lovely way to spend the day. Great pics, fun living vicariously through your adventures

    Kudos to those police officers. I’d support someone taking measures like that here. Are the masks mandated there? That’s our biggest problem here. A big excuse for the unmaskers.
    What a delightful lunch. You probably didn’t need or care for anything for dinner.
    So much to see in Paris! I spite of all the years you’ve come, there’s so many wonderful places you’re still discovering. The park was a spectacular escape.

      Masks are required in all mass transit and any inside venue. All restauranteurs are supposed to check your vaccine pass or what they call un pass sanitaire but they are not all doing it. We don’t go to those places which nixes the little Bouquet St. Paul below us. The patron or manager also proudly says he will not get vaccinated. He participates in the protests and was a yellow vest participant a few years ago with riots on the street. Each to his own, I suppose, but don’t put my health in jeopardy. After the year I had last from October to May, I take no chances.

    I also thought the white wire horse in the botanical garden was lovely! You are quite right that that beautiful garden very much resembles ours here in Huntsville.

    The Parc Floral and Bois de Vincennes is one of our favorite places. We’ve even rowed a boat around the lake! It does seem very far out, but really, if you hop on the metro nowhere is very far away. Next time you go, be sure to get your photos sitting in one of those big letters! Enjoy your warm days. I hope they make up for the chilly summer.
