Wednesday in Paris

First stop this morning was an old favourite,the Musee de l'Orangerie.

Mainly to once again be delighted by 
Claude Monet's Les Nympheas
but also for the stunning 
Jean Walter - Paul Guillaume Collection down stairs.

Next we enjoyed a long,
but interesting stroll through the 
Jardins des Tuileries.

 I am always impressed by IM Pei's vision with his glass pyramid at the Louvre.

 Lunch was at le Cafe Marly on the splendid verandah.
Although it is supposed to be Spring here in Paris,the staff kindly offered 
cosy red blankets to keep our knees warm.

 Paused for drinks at Cafe Nemours 
in Place Colette and 
watched the world go by ...

Daniel Buren's black and white sculpture continues to please my eye.

How lovely is this avenue of trees
 in the 
Jardin du Palais Royal ?

The model had those legs we all 
should have been born with, 
but she did look a bit cold!

 Love this !

J'adore Paris ...
