Our weekend Parisian flower series continues with these pink blossoms from the Jardins de Reuilly.
A little-known Parisian treasure is the Promenade Plantée, a green strip stretching across the 12th arrondissement from the Bois de Vincennes, on the Eastern edge of Paris, to the Bastille. You can actually walk all the way from one end to the other without setting foot on the streets - a plus for Benjy, who dislikes urban noises... A few blocks before reaching the Bastille, the Promenade actually shifts to the rooftops of the trendy design boutiques on the avenue Daumesnil.
The Jardins de Reuilly are located along the Promenade; it's a cool place for picnics, and if you bring a laptop, you can go online, as wi-fi is available in most of Paris's public gardens.
By the way, does anyone know what those trees are?
