View Larger Map
My husband, who works long days and travels far allowing me plenty of time to play and blog about my adventures, pointed out to me that yesterday's post failed to capture just how hidden the gardens are in the 7th arrondissement. So zoom in on that red indicator on the map above and you will see the solid wall of stone along the rue de Varenne and the amazing amount of green space hidden behind. The red indicator marks the site of the Italian embassy; the Ministry of Agriculture is down the street a bit (to the west, the direction of Les Invalides). Actually it looks to me like M. Fillon, resident at the Hôtel Matignon, has the biggest yard on the block. Too bad if he gets the boot in November as some are suggesting may happen.
