Palais Royal Roses

One of the many things which I adore about the Palais Royal gardens is the constant change of flowers. Every month there will be new flowers in bloom and the flowers of the previous season will slowly shrivel in order to make room for the next batch. Whilst it is always saddening to see flowers wilt, it is always reassuring to know that new life will spring in the form of pretty flowers thus making every trip to these gardens a pretty surprise. The last time I took photographs here the trees were looking much bearer but the magnolias were in full bloom yet when I returned there wasn’t a single magnolia in sight and instead rose bushes had taken their place. But these weren’t just any roses, they were the most beautiful powder pink roses I’d ever seen, each petal folding in on itself to create the most beautifully delicate creases.

How you just take photos and not want to just snip off a few to take home I don’t know. Of all the Paris blogs I follow flowers are a common theme. Enjoy!!

I looove roses! We have these in our own garden at home at they just have so many petals, truly amazing. It’s too bad they wither so soon. Better just enjoy them while you can! :)
