Sunday we went to a plant show in Les Mureaux, a completely undistinguished suburb of Paris. Well, undistinguished until you get to the park that runs along the Seine. That was quite lovely and was where they had the show.
The show featured succulents. In general, we saw easy-care plants for people like me, who generally wake up one morning to find themselves surrounded by dead things in plastic pots. Even I am not likely to kill the dwarf and supposedly not aggressive nandina bamboo that we picked up. The photo below is more about cactus than succulents, but that’s about my level of gardening skill.
I was tempted to try a few. They are so cheap. Why not?
The surprise was lunch. Even the sandwich stand had plenty of shaded tables — I wish Paris Photo would do as well — but we headed to this truly impressive popup restaurant, complete with table service and multiple courses of very decent food.
Plant shows are among my favorite parts of life in France. Jacques likes them, too.
