April in Paris! It couldn't be more perfect. The
city is full of blossoms everywhere we walk.
We went to the Eiffel Tower on Apr. 14th, and
as we stopped to rest a moment under a
tree  near the Passarelle, a stiff breeze
suddenly broke through the still air and  lifted
a storm of rose-colored petals from the
blossoms on the tree above us. We were
caught up in a swirling blizzard of  pink petals!

What a wonderful day!  We took a picnic
lunch to the Bois de Vincennes, a huge
expanse of woods that borders the 12th
Arrondissement.  After a walk through the
zoo, ( A lot of exhibits were being
renovated.) we walked to the Parc Floral.  It
is enormous and exploding in color.  We
encountered displays of every plant
imaginable --flowering trees, bulbs, herb
gardens, bonsai gardens, etc. There was a
butterfly pavillion (closed till May), puppet
theater, 2 restaurants, lake and a lot more.  
Before we returned via the metro, we took
some time to walk around the Chateau de
Vincennes.  Wow! We're going to return
with the big camera and take more
pictures.  The chateau and the Ste.
Chapelle have been renovated and are due
to reopen in June.

Today we strolled through a very
unusual residential section of Paris, just
down from our apartment building .  
Many of the buildings are only
two-stories and some are only one story!

Later in the day, we went to a music
rehearsal followed by a party. While we
were at the party, Paris had its first big
rain storm for April 2007.  At the end of
the party, we walked back to the
apartment on freshly washed streets and
sidewalks.

Today we received word that Francisca died. She
is loved and she will be missed.  We will miss her
ready smile and her strong zest for life.  May she
rest in peace.
