Le jardin des plantes, part 2: le jardin des pivoines

As mentioned earlier “le jardin des pivoines” (the garden of peonies) in the botanical garden is definitely a must! I was there in May and it was perfect timing as most of the peonies were beautifully in bloom. Few of them were beginning to fade and it was also charming in a way: all the petals gathered on the floor or looking like crumpled paper…. some of them will definitely be “my models” for drawings and paintings!
