A Stroll Through a Spring Garden

What a lovely break it was from this snowy and cold Midwest winter.   It was like we had been transported back in time - back in time when we visited Paris last spring.   

We found it a bit of a coincidence that the Louvre’s Tuileries Garden exhibit was brought to our town’s museum almost one year after our visit to Paris and the Louvre.   


Once private gardens for French royalty, the Tuileries is now open for the public's enjoyment and serves as a grand, red carpet-style entrance to the Musée du Louvre.  The garden is a museum in itself with very old sculptures as well as contemporary art.

The local exhibit is a fine display of sculptures, paintings, tapestries and drawings - which gave us a sense of strolling through Paris’ most famous garden.


As fleeting as it was, it was a wonderful visit - just long enough to escape the cold, get a glimpse of green, and be reminded of the beauty and warmer days of spring to come.

Have a wonderful week!
