Bamboo grew overnight in the Luxembourg gardens
It's fascinating to see how Bamboos - and Palm trees - have become so popular recently in Paris although the climate is not really adapted to that kind of plants (it's not humid and it can get pretty cold in winter). The latest evidence of this sudden climate change is this bamboo forest that they planted (in pots) almost overnight about a week ago. They also spread little blue rocks on the ground and the overall effect is really worth the look.
PS: I am just back from a week-end in Provence and I did not pay too much attention to the news there. I found out yesterday about the earthquake in Indonesia. All the City Daily Photo bloggers immediately thought of Santy from Jakarta Daily Photo.
