Le Cercle d'Amis


Maybe you see this as just a jumble of chairs. To me, it represents the delightful way that Parisians gather with friends.  Sometimes it's in the grass seated in a circle as they share a picnic lunch.  More often, I think it's in parks such as Luxembourg, the Palais Royal, or here at Tuileries.  The chairs are gathered in a circle for conversation and perhaps a glass of wine or champagne.  Paris, j'adore!

Ho potuto apprezzare la comodità di queste sedie godendomi l'ombra delle piante dei giardini di Luxenbourg.
Paris, J'adore!

These chairs are covered by snow today ! Yes we had our first snow during the night and everything was white this morning when I woke up.

Oui, c'est vrai Virginia, ces chaises sont faites pour retrouver des amis et discuter avec eux dans un jardin! Mais en été pas en hiver !

With all the friends we have, we'll have to draw up a few more chairs. Love this!

Snow? Vraiment? I'm ready, Laurent!
