Conciliabule secret


Secrets exchanged and plans hatched on Sunday when the temperature soared to about 90° making me go in search of a cool breeze in Balbi park which was originally created in 1786 by the Count of Provence, Louis the 16th's brother and future Louis the 18th.

Echange de secrets à l'ombre dimanche lorsque la température est montée à 32°. J'ai cherché un peu de fraîcheur au Parc Balbi, créé en 1786 par le Comte de Provence, frère de Louis XVI et futur Louis XVIII.

Beautiful!! How is the humidity there? We are very dry here and that's what we're used to. It got to 16% humidity the other day and everyone was wilting!

I knew the Louees did some good things! It's a gorgeous place. A good place to take surreptitious photos, too, obviously. How did you find your about "secrets exchanged and plans hatched"? Hiding in the bushes, heh?

Heh, heh!

Me again...re your question. That's the same ol' stuffed gator. But last week a 13-foot gator bit a worker at Silver Springs park and put him in the hospital in serious condition...gotta be careful! Lotsa gators in the Withlacochee, too.

I hope you have a dear sister or dear friend with whom to share such young, green secrets. I suspect you have sisters all over the planet because of this blog and you can whisper your secrets to the breeze and send them wherever you wish them to go.

I like the place but I'm a little worried about the canicule...

Quel bel endroit!et ces deux petites filles qui échangent leurs secrets, ça renvoie à l'insouciance de l'enfance, l'aventure au fond d'un jardin, les amitiés dont on pense qu'elles dureront "pour la vie"..

It looks cool there, nice shade from the trees. Beautiful scenery. So far, we've had 14 days at 90 or higher this June. Today will be 15, then we get a break for a few days.

Come on over here Ciel. As I type this, it's 50 F outside.

So lush and green--a perfect summer hideaway. MB

Les enfants sont mignons!

Oh I love that first photo! Reminds me of how my best friend and I would pretend to be Anne and Diana from Anne of Green Gables. I hope those two aren't cutting their hair like we did ;-)

Enchanting spot, Ciel. I love the inclusion of the children!

90°? It's much cooler here. :)

This park looks like a place I'd like to explore.

Eleonora said...

Spectacular place. And the photos sublime.

Mignonne comme tout cette photo de secrets d'enfants avec la vegetation et les fleurs.
