A Gorgeous Gray Day in Les Jardins du Luxembourg

Paris is full of surprises, especially when it comes to the weather.

Monday this week was phenomenally beautiful and sunny. It finally felt like summer was here! Then came Tuesday. It was warm but the day was completely masked in gray. Luckily, Haussmann created buildings from beautiful stone that look stunning in any weather, and there are places like the Jardin du Luxembourg in the city.

My “wee [Scottish] sis” came to visit from Edinburgh, which was so much fun. That afternoon, we decided to explore the 5th arrondissement. After walking around the grounds, we discovered the tennis courts and children’s pools and play areas, as well as the museum where the Chagall exhibit is going on. There are so many gorgeous spaces within the garden!

Happy 4th of July, everyone!
