Nancy, France...




....last year while in France, we took a train from Paris to Nancy....such a beautiful city!! While I could show what is considered to be the most beautiful square in Europe...(Place Stanislas)...or its majestic fountain......I choose instead to show some of the wonderful rose garden. I adore the garden arch above and the roses were at their best and the fragrance was amazing!!!

...such beautiful detail as this band stand in the park....

...the faded grandure of the buildings....don't you just love the shutters with all the peeling paint work!

...and then there's the 'detail'......it's all about the 'detail'!!!

The way you take photos of France and Paris really shows that you have a love for France. The photos are beautiful and you take photos of details that people don't always see.
Keep up with French lessons, I'm sure you will manage. However I know that French is a difficult language.

You didn't mention one of the delicious speciality of Nancy:Les Bergamotes!
MIAM!
Did you taste those delicious sweets?

Thank you for the beautiful pictures anyway!

A bientôt.

I love flowers, and think you're brilliant for giving us your personal photos of them and, of course, each of us will probably visit this site on the www to see the most beautiful square in Europe. Thank you.
