The Sunday Traveler ~ Luxembourg Gardens, Paris

The Luxembourg Gardens of Paris. The Sunday Traveler was only able to catch glimpses while on a walking tour one cold Saturday morning. The gardens were begun under the guidance of Queen Marie de Medici in 1612, inspired by her love for the Boboli Gardens in Florence. I’ll leave the historical research to all of you, and it is indeed interesting as is everything in Paris; stories upon stories, and this one including pieces of the incredible story, Les Miserable.

What mesmerized the Sunday Traveler during this whirlwind week in Paris were the trees. The winter trees, barren, but yet, to me, beautiful; here in the Luxembourg Gardens, as well as in the gardens of the Rodin Museum, the trees seemed to take center stage to my eyes.

In the warmer days, remote controlled toy boats are launched here on this little pool by many a child, and adult as well I’m pretty sure.

A look here and there, and scenes like that above of a statue and the Pantheon beyond  forever frozen in my mind of a week that flew by all too soon. What is enough time to see Paris in? One week is not the correct answer.
