L'automne place Hoche

Autumn on Place Hoche. For winter views of the beautiful, beautiful tree, see here and here. If anyone knows what these flowers are (not the dahlias), please let me know!

Pour voir l'arbre en hiver, voyez ici et ici. Si quelqu'un sait ce que sont ces fleurs (pas les dahlias), je suis preneuse de l'information !

Beautiful colours!

No, I haven't any idea what they are.

An urban version of Steffe's old tree. It's grand.

Randy said...

That tree has a nice shape.

Dave said...

Are they Ameranthus - "Love lies bleeding" ?

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

Looks like Ameranthus to me too. It's a little late in the year for them but this year has been strange anyway. A truly beautiful tree.

Wow, this is a beautiful and large tree!
The flowers look like the Amaranth to me. (German: Gartenfuchsschwanz)

Ah, thank you for the photograph of the lovely tree. We stayed on Rue Hoche in the summer and I loved the area. Glad to be reading you after your break for my daily fix from Versailles! Jane x ps not sure about the flowers but il ask my son who is a gardener.

'Tis indeed a beautiful tree. As to the flowers, that's easy: They're pink and red fluffies.

Hope your Sunday is going well!

:)) that Lowell! I guess it won't be too long now before the Place Hoche tree looses it's leaves once more Ciel.. is it just me or are the seasons moving along too quickly these days?

It could give Steffe's tree a run for its money! It's a beauty.
