Parc de Sceaux on a sunny day


Second sunny day in a row in Ile de France... So, we went for a walk (a two hour walk) in the park.Me with my Green Bag (modeling in front of the Chateau du parc) which is a nice little museum.



Here we are, meeting up ... at the kiosque where we had a hot drink....
Back view of the nicely "French manicured" trees!



Barbara and Emily enjoying their hot drinks.


The HUGE tree that was once there... has been reduced to sawdust!



Gratuitous GREEN BAG shot... Whooo hooo!!!


Signs on spring showing in the garden of the parc...





Photo opp! SMILE... and show those TEETH (pearly whites)!! Isn't that a great backdrop?!




Stopping to say, "hello" was a cute little westie who left his little paw print on my white pants! Hehehe! He was really cute, though!


Long shot of the Grand Canal (just kidding, that's what I call it!)




A ball of gui in the tree (cherry tree). Gui is French for "mistletoe!"



And here is that big ball of gui!
This is in the cherry orchards (pink).


Moving along....

Making our way across the grass to get to the cherry orchards (white).



White cherry trees. Well you can't really tell b/c there aren't any flowers yet.

Hi Leesa, How great to see you, Barbara and Emily having fun. It looks fantastic there.

I love the way the trees are all lined up. It is going to look very pretty when all the shoots come through. :-) :-)
