Parc de Bagatelle Pics

Below is a link to some glorious photos of the rose gardens at Bagatelle that I saved from last spring, knowing that I would have need of them during the long, dank off-season.

Until I saw these pictures, I thought I'd seen and been impressed by Bagatelle. Now I feel like I've never really been there.

Enjoy! (NOTE: At the very end, the blogger/photographer's aged mom utters a rather "salty" comment, so if you're offended by coarse language [even if it is rolling off the tongue of a very old lady], be forewarned and read nothing below the final pic.)

**I'm finding that the link seems to begin loading at the center of the series of photos, so you may need to scroll UP to start at the beginning.

How gorgeous is that!

RE: Parc de Bagatelle Pics

Oh, my. Lovely.

RE: Parc de Bagatelle Pics

I laughed so loudly at the end of your story, that my son and daughter-in-law had to come into the kitchen to see over my shoulder just what was so funny. They, too, enjoyed your post. ;-)
And the roses, ah, the roses were simply exquisite. Thank you ever so much for giving us the link to your posting.
Well done.

This was so great, gorgeous pictures and so hilarious. I felt as though I were there with you, pushing Mamma along, anything to make this a special day for her, and then the zinger at the end, with glamour shot of mom and her priceless words. Thank you for that great post!

Forget the roses, lovely as they are. I want to live in that house!

A great visit to Bagatelle, in the most cheerful company: thanks for posting the link!
