Square Jean Houdon

I have shown you the statue of famous Versaillais Jean Houdon before, you can click here for a reminder. This is a more general view of the square that bears his name. As you can see, the trees are beginning to show signs of autumn...

Je vous ai déjà montré la statue du versaillais Jean Houdon. C'était ici. Voici une vue plus générale avec les arbres qui commencent à roussir...

Adorable square! My goodness...isn't it early for fall?

You can just start to see a hint of color changing which looks beautiful against that sky! At least the flowers are not yet fooled.

Houdon was extremely talented. We don't have color changes yet here, but the days are a little cooler, the nights are definitely colder, and the days are shorter.

Lovely to see the street view where Jean Houdon resides Ciel, it looks like a very elegant area. How weird is it that the leaves are starting to colour and soon fall where you are, and ours are just starting to bud for Spring.

Lovely area!

Je ne vois pas bien mais si les arbres roussissent déjà c'est que ce sont des marronniers atteints par la mineuse, ils n'en mourront pas même s'ils sont tous atteints sur la RP mais cela les fatigue de perdre leur ramure trop tôt.
(C'est dommage qu'il n'y ait pas une table à pique nique dans ce square. Au fait où c'est qu'on mange le soir par chez toi ?)

Nice little square. Love the trees, even if they're turning.

I can't wait for fall, but it is too early for that here.

JM said...

Please don't mention the signs of Autumn, I don't want to feel depressed so soon!... LOL! Lovely little square.

A beautiful place and thanks for the link to your original image.
You live in a lovely place.

I cannot believe you said autumn. It seems like so far away from where I am at.

Where did your summer go? I bet Versailles has a lot of small corners missed by tourists... just the kind I like.
