Weekend in October &
Jardin des Plantes, Paris
It's the weekend - actually the beginning of Toussaint break for my kids. We are hoping for a nice break weather-wise - hopefully step away from the rain and wind of the past few weeks. It's time for some sunshine! The kids are excited to have the next 2 weeks off (yes, my US friends, I did say 2 weeks - The French school calendar is made up of several 2 week breaks). It's actually nice to have a bit of a break from school - we are planning to hang out around here for the first week and then we are headed North with some friends.
So in hoping for some sunshine...I wanted to share some photos from the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. When I was up there earlier this month, I had the luxury of enjoying a nice walk around this park.
Even though it was early October, there were still plenty of flowers in bloom. So welcoming and colorful. I can only imagine how vibrant and beautiful it looks in the Spring and Summer.
Would love to bring the kids to this park - the museum, the zoo and of course a playground - so many fun things to do!
I love the expressions on these statues....
So off on break we go....looking forward to doing more exploring and adventuring....
