I took a little break from Paris posts but I'm back with a vengeance. My blog posts for the rest of this week will finally wrap up coverage of my January visit. Today we walk Avenue des Champs-Élysées...
I loved that this window-sill contained not one, but two little lemon trees, both with fruit!
I wonder if there were more and they've been picked and enjoyed?
Oh! A planty courtyard.
And we're here, the Arc de Triomphe.
If you're curious about all the details then click over here, where you can read all about them.
I do find it interesting there are clothed people and naked people, all grouped together.
And topless ladies.
The tomb of the unknown soldier.
Walking along the Champs-Elysées I was surprised at how many big American brands had shops and restaurants located there. Like this one...
This jerk was using his dog to beg for change.
That sign in the big brass frame probably talks about this installation planting. Funny I was so busy snapping pictures I didn't even stop to read it.
That's an old olive tree!
They did a pretty good job of hiding the plastic pots.
Looking back at the Arc de Triomphe, it feels like we walked much further than it looks like we walked.
The Tuileries Garden was lovely to stroll through, but mid-January it lacked much punch, I'm sure this is a much more active place about now...
Look how far those chairs are reclined!
A dusk shot of the pyramids at the Louve, just because we were walking by.
