Glorious roses. Some times the Paris city workers make it too easy for you photographers. Come play along with Dreaming of France today if you get a chance. Also, enter for a $20 Amazon gift card giveaway on my blog. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

Yes, I should! They weren't much in mid-April! How lovely!

Alexa said...

And I'll try to do it when the roses are in bloom! This is gorgeous, V --

I fall for your photos of roses every time! Great photo!

I did a double take when I saw this photo of the rose arched. At a quick glance they looked like the Elizabeth Park rose arches. These are narrower. AND, lovely.

I think this is the garden featured in the movie Before Sunset, right?
It looks beautiful!

sorry for being absent from your Stream - but here i am again....
thought first that this was taken at Giverny (Monet's Garden) - because I have tons of similar ones from this all-time favourite garden.
contrary to you I have been umpteen times at the Jardin de plantes but never when the roses were SO spectacular.... many tks for this treat

As soon as I saw this I thought of Jack's Elizabeth Park; no wonder he was surprised to see your photo.

This is Belgium said...

do you know the song, V as sung by Edith Piaf ? I know you 'd love it.

Gorgeous shot! We visited Jardin des Plantes on our last trip three years ago, but never found anything that beautiful.
