Jardin de l'Intendant II

Jardin de l'Intendant

On the secluded southwest corner of the grounds of Hôtel des Invalides 
is this quiet topiary garden walled off from the Avenue de Tourville.  
It is far away from the entrances to les Invalides and the tourists.  

In my many visits here I have seen 
families, lovers, readers, walkers, 
and not infrequently a single person 
enjoying the benches and solitude.

Such a lovely, quiet looking place to enjoy a little solitude as well as share with a friend. Great capture for the day as always, Genie! Hope your week is going well.

I would like to be doing that this very minute!

The only time I was there, I did not see even a single person.

Alexa said...

That does look like an excellent place to stop and "set a spell!"

Looks like a great place for a read.
