Paris let’s Fall in Love

19

Paris in the Fall has to be one of my favorite times. The air turns crisp and the green ivy turns to red. There are so many beautiful pops of color around the city. This will be my first October not in Paris in a few years but the good news is I will be back in early November. I can’t wait. Until then here are a few of my favorite Fall images from Paris.

Rodin Museum Gardens

0

The past few visits in Paris the gardens in the Rodin Museum have been under construction. Parts have been open but it hasn’t been free of construction for a while. This past visit I was thrilled to be able to walk around the gardens and enjoy the greenery and warm weather. If you get a chance to visit the inside admission is 5 euros I believe but its only 1 euro to visit the gardens. I would add it to your list!

Watching the Seasons Change in Palais Royal

5

Palais Royal is tucked behind the Louvre and the Tulleries. I used to dismiss it on the map and never made a point to visit. Now, its one of my favorite places in Paris to people watch. This month I was able to watch the seasons change as I walked through the garden. I will treasure these moments and thank goodness for me the pictures will bring me great memories for years to come.

Towards the end of the month they clipped the trees and the leaves were gone.

Sunset Show

Last night I took a stroll through the tulleries with friends in Paris. The Paris sky put on a perfect show for all of us with the eiffel tower as the star. Don’t you agree?

Autumn Perfection

0

Perfection is hard to achieve but today the weather was pretty much there. I of course always pack an umbrella because you never know when a downpour will happen. I met a new friend at the Bastille market to show him around. Its one of my favorite places if you haven’t read already. Thankfully my friend was up for anything I threw his way. We walked up and down the aisles as I pointed out some of my favorite vendors. Then we started tasting things… I told him that everything tasted better in France. Apples, tomatoes, cheese, even oysters. We tasted it all. His reaction “oh my gosh this is good!!” It of course made me smile knowing that he agreed. We grabbed a few cheeses and my favorite baguette and headed to Place de Vosges. Sitting in the sun it was finally not raining and it felt more like Spring than Fall. Autumn Perfection…

St Germain Strolling

0

I woke up to rain in Paris. It surprises me how much rain can actually fall in one city… I walk everyday no matter what so I didn’t let it stop me. We luckily had a few hours of sunshine this afternoon where I strolled through Ile St Louis picked up some raspberry ice cream from Berthillon and made my way to St Germain.

I have talked about the season in Paris before but its really interesting to see the way the trees frame the architecture. In the Spring you will notice certain buildings because of the blossoms, in the winter the trees are bare and the architecture looks completely different. With the changing of the leaves my eye bounces from one building to the next as the greens and reds contrast the blues and grays of Paris.

A little something I am working on…

3

This past year I was lucky enough to spend four months in Paris. When I would explain to friends and family about my experience over the four months is that I experienced Paris in the freezing cold, snow, rain, beautiful Spring, and the Fall. Every type of weather and season is so different in Paris. Most people visit Paris in Spring/Summer because the flowers, the warmer weather and summer vacation. Winter and Fall were a time of year a lot of people didn’t get to experience. It is equally beautiful and I actually prefer it over the warmer months. I started working on a project pulling pictures of Paris from the different seasons. Its my hope and dream to one day put this in a book. Here is a little peak of Luxembourg Gardens in the Winter and Autumn.
