jardin des serres d'auteuil

Walking over to see the Stade Roland Garros (where the French Open is played) we discovered the Jardin des Serres d'Auteuil. It is one of the largest Botanical Gardens / Green houses in Ile de France.

As we entered, we thought it would be lovely to just walk the grounds. But much to our surprise, we found that the public was allowd to enter the green houses! One, the main one, was 2 stories tall... and had palm trees touching the glass ceiling! There were Koi ponds, and tropical birds flying around! It was amazing!!!

What a wonderful mistake finding this place!!!

I most likely will not be able to update for a few days, because my friend Sal has arrived and we will be traveling up to Belgium for the week (unless we find an internet cafe)... but there is still many more posts to come!!!!! Be back soon...
