Fridays in France: Parks for Humans

Paris is full of gardens. Flowers and landscapes encourage me admire them...and so I will with my markers and watercolors. Yes, picnics are planned throughout the adventures, too! Countdown as of this post is 17 days before arrival to Paris!!!

Just a few mentioned here:

Buttes Chaumont Park

Promenade Plantee

Parc Montsouris

Jardin du Luxembourg

Tuileries Garden

The best resources about parks in Paris,: for descriptions and locations.
HipParisBlog for manners, picnics, etc.

My French Country Home Blog has incredible landscapes and flowers and other fun things.

Taken from Google Maps: each pin
represents a park.
