Le paradis ?


Empty and shady August benches in the grounds of Madame Elisabeth's orangerie. Could this be heaven?!

Les bancs déserts et ombragés du mois d'août dans le domaine de Madame Elisabeth seraient-ils le paradis ?

I agree, but in this French paradise, the benches are definitely British...

A true sunny green paradise.

No, silly, it's not heaven. It is very nice, though...a place to refresh oneself when it's hot.

Is everyone on vacation in the south of France? It looks so quiet.

If it were heaven, we'd have to conclude that no one was there and we were outside looking in!
Regarding your lack of interest in coffee, Can I treat you at least to hot chocolate?

Fully expecting to see Babooshka (Ramsey Daily Photo) hopping onto this bench at any minute. That has to be the greenest green I've seen in a while!

@VP: definitely!
@Bob: yep. It's great! They're all starting to come back unfortunately.

Oh! I love that bench and you should tell Rune (Visual Norway) about it today since he has this informal bench blog on Fridays. . . I have a bench too -- it is my personal bench I bought at Farmers Market last month. Drop by and see it on my bench blog.

Looks like heaven to me. ;-) I'm guessing everyone is on holiday and that the crowds will return soon.

No! Not heaven but it is just around the corner.
