Bois de Boulogne - Parc de Bagatelle

After spending Tuesday walking the city streets, Ruth and I decided to spend Wednesday in the woods - the bois de Boulogne - a large park (2.5 times larger than New York's Central Park) on the west edge of Paris. I love the Parc de Bagatelle within the bois, there are thousands of spring bulbs in the lawns and the parc contains a rose garden with over 12,000 different species of roses. It's been a cold winter here, so the spring flowers are getting a late start and the roses won't be blooming for another couple of months. But the peacocks think it's spring as you can see from the following photos:


  1. I would love to see more pictures of this park when the flowers do come out! The last picture you have of the peacock is fantastic!

  2. wow - those are some amazing birds! It is so nice to see all the photos!
