More Pictures of the Parc Floral de Paris

Here are some more pictures of the Parc Floral de Paris, from our visit in May:

A magnificent Bonsai (above)

Rainbow Chard in the potager section (above)

One of Patrick Blanc's fabulous living walls (above)

A general view of one of the lovely walks in the Parc (above)

Azaleas and ferns amongst the pine trees (above). These pine trees were on the site before the Parc was created, and were wisely allowed to remain. Their tall, bare, straight trunks provide a very striking vertical note.

The optician's in the town of Vincennes who saved the day when Simon broke his glasses
(above).

Our previous posts about the lovely Parc can be found here and here.
