our lives, our loves — through our earthly adventures.

Bagatelle Beckons

The task of a leader is to get his people from where they are… to where they have not been.  ~ Henry Kissinger

 

Two Sundays ago, my boys and I went to see the first flowers of Spring at the beautiful gardens of Château de Bagatelle in the Bois de Boulogne.  In the 1700s, this amazing garden was a “glorified playground” — a maison de plaisance — for the powers-that-be.  It was built at record-speed on a wager, taking only 63 days, 800 workers, and 3 million livres.

And there I was, standing in awe at the huge land where this grand château rested, watching the peacocks that roamed freely.

Then I whispered to my husband:  “If I lived in a house like this while in Paris — I may never wish to leave.”

Days like these make me believe that indeed, Paris is stupendous in very many ways.

Come on, Mom... Take the picture already!!!!

    Thanks, Vito. Yes… the park is awesome. In fact, we only managed to see half of it cause it started to rain hard! 🙂
