Du Jardin des Ifs in Gerberoy, France

I received a press release about a month ago about a garden and restaurant in the French countryside and I followed up with the publicist, asking her if I could visit. She was happy to arrange the visit and said that I could get a ride with the owner’s husband, who would be driving there from Paris on Friday morning.  I had not been out of Paris, except for when I went to France Miniature in the beginning of July, since the end of February, so I was beyond excited to leave the city and hav...

A Heavenly Tour!

Scattered around the third and fourth arrondissements of Paris are sculpted angels on buildings. The buildings range in century ages from 1400s to 1600s to 1700s to 1800s to the early 1900s. After 1914, the angels become living relics of the past yet still enjoyable to admire. To reach each of these sculptures, Rosemary Flannery took us on her Angels of Paris No. 2 guided walk, based on her book Angels of Paris. Passing through passages to avoid street noise, through gardens, narrow medieval st...
