Cafés in Paris have excellent coffee, but only in very small portions, so we went to McDonald's thinking that surly they'd have bigger cups of coffee... Nope :-).
This was one of my favorite sights, and we didn't even know that it was there until we stumbled upon it! It's a nursery that takes up several buildings and spills way out into the sidewalk. It has everything from trees and shrubs to bulbs and seeds. It also has perennials and indoor plants and everything you need to take care of everything with and to enhance your garden. The picture I took really doesn't begin to show how large or how beautiful it is. I hope to capture it better with pressed flowers someday.
The Parc des Buttes-Chaumont is a very large park and is very interesting to explore. We did a lot of walking there and saw gardens, tumbling water, a cave, a pond and a tall cliff, on top of which is a fancy gazebo, from which you can get a great view of Paris. We also saw lots of cute dogs, one of which reminded me a lot of my dog, two bunnies, a pony and parrots.
My favorite part of today: Sitting outside in a café and hearing the waiter say, "Bon appétit," as he set big plates of beautiful food before us.
