My own private garden...


Today - and this has nothing to do with the surprise I mentioned yesterday - I would like to share with you one of my "secret" addresses in Paris... This is the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild in the heart of the 8th arrondissement (not far from Les Champs Elysées). Right in front of it, there is a secluded garden known by a bunch of happy fews - which I'm part of since last week!... where you can  lay in the sun (and in the grass). Just for you, my dear PDP visitors, I'll  disclose the address ! It's at  12, avenue de Friedland (Metro Charles de Gaulle). I'm not kidding, it's really worth the trip...

  1. Beautiful architecture. It reminds me Royal Baths in Warsaw.

  3. This is indeed the place to see and be seen. It comes to my realization that Maison des Artistes,Société Nationale des Beaux Arts et Syndicat National des Sculpteurs are all in L'Hotel Salomon de Rothschild.

    I am treating myself as a sculpture today - make from marble.

    Hmmmm...the question now is: "Who(m) I want to be / be with?". Maybe The Three Graces would be good. I wish to be amongst the girls. Heheheheee....;)

  4. For some reason, I'm picturing you slithering along the ground all the way from yesterday's gallery to today's garden—just to keep up your famous perspective! :~} Wish I'd known about this beautiful garden when I visited friends who live right up the street (I'll bet they don't even know about it—so thanks for letting us all in on your secret garden.

  9. Thanks for sharing this gem with with the 'few' of us:)
    I will be in Paris in November and I will check this out, just wonder if the grass will be green...

  10. That grass looks very inviting ~ I'm so happy to hear that it's not just teasing, and we are actually allowed to laze on it. Just you and a few {hundred thousand} PDPers, Eric. ;)

  11. Does this really exist somewhere Eric? I mean, this green grass in the center of Paris is just incredibly APPEALING. I love your title and your shot is beautiful.
    Your photographies are for me like expressionnist paintings that I really love. You know how to give to the colors and to the light - in extenso to the life - the sound the clearest and the purest. I'm inspiring, writing this, from a Franz Marc quote about his friend Auguste Macke. Love.
    Keats, I'm touched by your kind words but I could not find you on Twitter ... I so wish I could, as I love your humor and cultural references. I always keep my wikipedia pages ready to use when I read you :) Thank you.
    Both of you have enlightened my day, as you know ;)

  14. Eric, we found this lovely place on our first trip to Paris. It was June and the gardens were lovely. Thank you for the sweet memory!

  15. Thanks for the tip Eric.
    Looks like we now have our very own secret PDP garden.

  16. Eric, what enchants me most is the amount of GREEN we can find in this utterly busy and never sleeping city of Paris. I don't know this place and I just hope that one day I'll find it - I will then think of you thankfully - you open up places in Paris I'd never know about otherwise and you generously share your 'loves' with us - THANK YOU, MERCI, DANKE, GRAZIE, OBRIGADA... :)
    L'adresse est notée....

  17. Thank you for letting us in on what looks to be a peaceful respite from the city. Everyone needs a secret garden. Unfortunately, you might have to find a new one now that the secret's out!

  18. @Flore

    Hmmm...it should work properly by now. I am a follower of Eric. You could link me through his Twitter just in case:

    Thank you very much indeed for all the enlightenments. Me too, I learn a lot... ;)

    Chat soon...

  19. What gorgeous colors there are!! Such green, green grass (in the Tenin perspective, of course) and such a blue, blue sky. It sets off this lovely place quite well. I always have a hard time remembering that there are people without a large expanse of green around them, since I am so blessed to have green from every single window (in the spring and summertime of course) and yellow and red in the fall, and then brown and white in the winter. Beautiful garden, Eric. Enjoy your visits there.

  20. Wait...do they belong to the same family as Champagne Baron de Rothschild?

    How very lucky to be among the Rothschilds!

    ReplyDelete
  21. :))) I just wish I could lay down in the grass and close my eyes and then open them with all this beauty, close to me ... with happiness. That's a delicious wish. Thank you for letting us know that even the most unexpected in a city like Paris is possible and turns true to happy few ... Sometimes you just have to accept to be amongst the happy few...
    Merci.

  22. How fabulous! And I love the low angle from which you've taken this shot, Eric. What a find!

  23. The clouds finally cleared and we have some sun, just like your photo. Enjoy the weekend!

  24. If I close my eyes and imagine that I am inhaling the fragrance of a Parisian sward (or dog paddling up to my nostrils in an exuberantly verdant, algae-thick pond) this scene seems like it could be just steps away.

  25. Thanks, Keats. Guess I'd better tweet something.

    Eric, I've added this to my list, merci.

  26. I wish your blog had a "Like" button like FB!!!

  29. Coach handbags outlet stores have become a shopper’s paradise where experienced bargain hunters now flock. We do not blame them, because the Coach Wristlet provides some fashionable bags. Most of people loves finding a good deal in Coach Poppy outlet stores!
