No! I don't want the month to end! No time to whine now, though! More about the leavetaking later.
My husband came back to Paris for the last few days of my stay and we had a late breakfast yesterday at Ladurée on Rue Jacob. The room is cozy on a gray morning, as yesterday was:
Then a late lunch yesterday at a café on Avenue Rapp, knowing we'd be having dinner with our new lovely friends Paris Parfait and her witty, charming husband at their gorgeous apartment that night. Will tell about that delicious evening tomorrow.
Back to Luxembourg gardens today, to try to sketch the bee houses that Florizelle had told me about. This was my second visit to try to do so. The first time, the bee area was locked up tight. Today it was, too. Instead, I found a statue of a woman painter on a corner of the orangerie. She has a large scallop shell for a palette.
Off to the Palais Garnier to see a ballet performance! A demain, les amis!
