Second day I have snuck by without watering, since that last rainstorm did it for me. Still humid today but a little bit better than yesterday...how do you people live in the South???
Got some darling chives and coriander herbs at the dollar store today. Hopefully they will hang in there as they don't water those poor dears very often.
VIRTUAL ROAD TRIP~JARDIN DU LUXEMBOURG, PARIS, FRANCE, PART 2
Yesterday we started our virtual road trip to France and the Jardin du Luxembourg. Today we continue in their beautiful grounds, with the stunning Fontaine de l'Obervatoire.
The Fontaine de l'Observatoire is a monumental fountain located south of the Jardin du Luxembourg with sculpture by Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux. It was dedicated in 1874. It is also known as the Fontaine des Quatre-Parties-du-Monde, for the four parts of the world embodied by its female figures, or simply the Fontaine Carpeaux.
