We started off at Lac Daumesnil watching a heron which perched for some time on one of the rowing boats.
|The lake is very large and includes two large islands|
The lack of rain was evident and Paris really needs rain soon - and lots of it.
|At one point there were a lot of crows on the ground. It reminded us of the Hitchcock movie.|
|There is an excellent collection of bonsais in the Parc Floral - the oldest we noticed dated back to 1896.|
|The Mistletoe shows up against the lighter green foliage.|

This evening we went to Square des Batignoles which was very busy indeed. The children were playing with their parents and the ducks were seeking places to spend the night. We watched a mother and father play with their small boy floating sticks down the water and through the tube under the footpath. I wonder how many generations of parents have done this. The beautiful old plane trees are quite a sight and we like the way the gardens are very informal. Dinner tonight was at an Italian restaurant close by the Square Batignoles.
