Who would have thought that the sun would be shining brightly again when I left my apartment Monday morning? It was so gorgeous, I had no choice but to head for Luxembourg Gardens, where I am always drawn on beautiful days. It was before lunchtime, so the park was relatively empty but for a few joggers dodging the mud puddles, several older folks enjoying the weather, and some moms who were grateful to be outside with their kids.
I was happy to see that my favorite park inhabitants, the bees, were still buzzing happily, despite the recent cold snap.
And something I had never noticed before- an Insect House!
From there I meandered back home, stopping along the way at the Bon Marche, where I wandered around the food section (surprise!) and bought some sea salt to take home.
I loved this pooch waiting outside the flower shop.
This shop didn’t have a dog, but was gorgeous.
Boulevard Raspail waited quietly for its next market day.
That night we went to dinner in an old pharmacy. Sadly, my photos of the exterior of Le Pharmacie didn’t come out very well, but at least you can appreciate the gorgeous color. The interior was decorated with old pharmacy bottles (which are quite collectible now).
After a long day of walking around Paris, it was just what the doctor ordered.
