Picnic in the Parc de Sceaux, Paris, France

Before Alex and I left on vacation in mid April, we were lucky enough to have a gorgeous summer-like day on Sunday (the 18th).
I had planned this picnic for over a month - but all was tentative and depending on the weather - so the plans weren't finalized until the day before.
We really lucked out because the temp was about 24C (75F) and sunny! Couldn't have asked for a better day!

A charming flower shop in the city of Paris.
The art of arranging flowers is as diverse as the flowers themselves.

Gorgeous roses for ever...

J' adore Paris mon amour!

Ανοιξιάτικο πίκνικ στο Πάρκο του Παρισιού

Πριν να φύγουμε για διακοπές με τον Άλεξ στα μέσα του Απρίλη, φανήκαμε αρκετά τυχεροί να έχουμε μια όμορφη καλοκαιρινή ημέρα την Κυριακή 18 του μηνός.
Είχα οργανώσει μια εκδρομή, ένα πίκνικ πριν ένα μήνα. Όλα όμως ήταν ρευστά και εξαρτώνταν από τον καιρό. Έτσι, τίποτα δεν είχε οριστικοποιηθεί παρά την προηγούμενη ημέρα.
Είμασταν πολύ τυχεροί γιατί η ημέρα ήταν ηλιολουστη και είχε 25 βαθμούς θερμοκρασία. Δεν θα μπορούσε να ήταν καλύτερη μέρα!
Καθήσαμε κάτω από τις σκιές των δέντρων με φίλους, όπως πολλοί άλλοι.
 Ευχάριστη, καλή παρέα, νόστιμο φαγητό και καλό κρασί ήταν ότι έπρεπε.
Το Πάρκο Park of Sceaux, κοντά στο Παρίσι είναι το αγαπημένο μου μέρος, που επισκέπτομαι πολύ συχνά. Είναι εξ' άλλου κοντά στην περιοχή που μένω.
Τα απίθανα τριαντάφυλλα σε όλους σχεδόν τους χρωματισμούς είναι εντυπωσιακά.
Ανθοδέσμη από υπέροχα τριαντάφυλλα.
