Not exactly Monet's water lilies at Giverny, but they're more accessible. Lily pads thrive in one of several ponds in the Bois du Boulogne, Paris.
The plume of smoke coming from the trees opposite the pond is from a barbeque grill. Several people were barbequing Sunday, right next to a large sign proclaiming "No barbeques!" Ah, the French: always the rebels!
From a distance, it looks as though a tree has fallen across the path leading from the bridge. In fact, the tree has leaned so far to the left, it's entwined with another.
This weeping willow offers cool shelter in summer's heat - not that it is warm in Paris at the moment - far from it!
