Jardin Catherine Laboure....





...'small gateway in a long brick wall'...is what you need to look out for if your are to find this delightful hidden garden.
"Jardin Catherine Laboure" was the 'potager' of the convent "Daughters of Charity" since 1633 .... now a public garden, a perfect place to come to sit and relax and admire the fabulous grapevine covered walk way and the perfect little espalliered apple trees.
29 rue de Babylone, 75007 Paris .... open daily, 8am-6.30pm

Lovely pictures, Linda! The covered walk reminds me of one we walked through in England . . . it was covered with wisteria . . . beautiful!

Your daughter is so lucky to have seen Pink! I keep hoping she'll come to my area . . . I'm getting a little old for such things, but I can still boogie with the best of them! They do still 'boogie' don't they?! LOL!!

Hugs,
Teresa
