Palm tree and Eiffel Tower


This photo is pretty unexpected in Paris for the weather is not particularly mild, especially in winter, and no palm tree can survive. And though this photo is not a fake! I took it from a recreation park called Aquaboulevard, located in the west of the city where they created a beach (with real sand!), put exotic trees, etc. It's totally artificial but just good enough for the city boys and girls that we all are...

  1. Eric, this is great. I miss Palm trees and I love Paris so the combination really makes me smile. Thanks for the comment on nudity you made in my blog as well. A subject I'll have to tackle soon!

  2. This had me fooled until I did a double take and saw the tip of the tower. I wonder if such a facility will have the effect of causing a televised 'College Spring Break' program as might occur elsewhere... Bill

  3. Are you saying that the plants are artificial? They sure look real in the photo.

  4. No, no Rock, they are real. They probably put them inside during winter.

  6. Inspired by your idea Eric, I'm working on a "Tenerife, one photo a day", so I'll be able to show you the real thing - genuine Canary Palms, growing wild.

  7. Excellent Pamela, I look forward to seing that - and if you do I will include you in my city blogs list of course.

    BTW, I am going to Tenerife on the 27th! Funny coincidence isn't.
