Paris / Parks

The secret garden….

Water lily

Yesterday my friend Vanessa took me to a secret garden in Paris.  It was so beautiful! In the middle of the garden there was a big fountain and plenty of water-lilies :-) I know my mom would have loved to visit this garden, her favorite flower is water-lily and I took her to the garden of Monet last summer but it was crowded with tourists and there were not that peacefull environment we had been looking forward to feel. But as soon as I stepped into this secret garden I felt so calm and at peace…listening to the sound of water, seeing all the flowers in different colors and just for a moment feel that I was far away from Paris.
