The beautiful gardens of Jardin des Plantes

I'm fully aware that this post, together with the museum photos from earlier this week, might make me come across as a dinosaur-loving-flower-geek, but it's hard to wander through Jardin des Plantes and not take hundreds a couple of photos of these beauties. By now you probably know how much I love some gorgeous flowers, and these were no exception. Jardin des Plantes had planted stunningly beautiful Dahlias throughout their gardens in all colours and shapes imaginable. And during a dull and grey autumn day, this was just what I needed.

I love that even in late October I got to enjoy some lovely blossoms in the park. For a minute there I could almost pretend as though summer was around the corner instead of winter... But until next spring flowers! I can't wait.
