That's how I spent Saturday, after a fabulous meal the night before in a tiny Basque restaurant with a cherished friend from England and her charming man. Early Saturday morning, I headed to my favorite place in Paris--- yes, the Luxembourg gardens! There's no end of things to draw there---I truly think I could not move from that place for a whole year and be very happy (provided my family and friends and dog and cat were there, too. I miss them.) Today is another gloriously sunny and warm day, so I'm off! A demain, les amis!
There's been a changing of the guard at Luxembourg gardens since I arrived on October 1. The delicate, coral blossomed geraniums featured in the garden's grand urns have just this week been replaced with yellow or russet crysanthemums. And how different is the mood of the place now! From spritely and feminine to decorous and stately, that's my sense of the change.

At the octagonal pond in the center of the garden, children sail little boats. Yesterday it was a bit chilly and I was there early, so there were few people about.
I stopped for a quick lunch at a cafe on Boulevard Saint Germain.
