I have wanted to return to the Parc de Bercy ever since I was introduced to it a couple of years ago, so this morning I took the métro and arrived at Bercy Village just as the early lunch crowd was beginning to gather.
I was disappointed to see Five Guys would be opening up a burger place. It's better than a McDonalds, I suppose, but still pretty disgusting.
No time for lunch at any of the other little restaurants today, so I walked on into the park.
Wished I'd thought to take a better photo of the map, but here it is anyway.
Photographing the water fowl look up a lot of my time.
Thank goodness the babies were past the ugly, gawky stage.
Htmb! Words fail. I am completely bowled over by this stunner of a thread. Wow -- one great photo after another! Your homely little chicks, your turtles, your pink hydrangea, your daylilies, your dandelion, oooooo, I could just go on and on. Kudos!
It has indeed become a beautiful park. I went there shortly after it had been planned out and started, so the flowers and bushes were much less full. But the architecture of the park was already set up -- it has certainly become an integral part of the vegetation.
