Here are some random pictures of the Luxembourg gardens. The buildings overlook the park.
There are cafes, tennis courts, fountains, pools for children's boats, bee hives, an orchard, pony rides, live music and chairs to sit in. But you are not allowed on the grass. Notice how great the grass looks. There is a dim photo of the park police striding off after blowing a whistle at some people who had wandered onto the grass.
I had to get a photo of a woman strolling along all dressed up and in four inch heels. Did she come to the park for exercise? I'm so slow sometimes.
And the French do jog and wear colors other than black especially on a Sunday morning in the park. There were tons of joggers that day.
