Roses in the "Jardin de Bagatelle"
In the Bois de Boulogne, not far from the inner city of Paris you can visit a very nice and peaceful garden called "le Jardin de Bagatelle". Not only will you see all kinds of vegetals and birds (including free-range, noisy peacocks!) but you can also visit one of the most beautiful rose gardens I have ever seen. Here I took a photo of a rose called Mrs Auriol, named after the wife of one of the French President of the Republic (Vincent Auriol, 1884-1966). By the way, there is also a restaurant in this garden, but I would not recommend it as the service is terrible (believe me, I am French, I know what I am talking about!). View original photo.
