While in Paris we had a chance to spend two days visiting the Jardin Des Plantes, which are these incredible gardens that also house a handful of museums, a zoo and a few greenhouses. The above and below snaps were taken from inside the tropical greenhouse.
There was also an Iris garden that made me rethink my luke-warm feelings about Irises. How crazy amazing are those color combos?
As you can see, Ida fell in love with them too.
We also went inside the zoo, the natural history museum, and I missed the botanical museum by just a few minutes (I wanted to cry) but the amazing grounds made up for it. The entrance to the Iris garden was so pretty that I already started discussing the idea of a vow renewal ceremony there–in about six years. Ha! If you’re in Paris, the Jardin Des Plantes is worth dedicating at least a day to — pack a picnic.
