For those who care about this tree, the Parc Monceau, and the people who go there: a higher resolution version of the photo posted earlier. (This one’s for you, Lou Garcia.)
I love this #tree in the ParcMonceau in Paris France. But in this photograph I also love the tiny details in the background: the child in the arms of the #statue, the #carousel, and the father and son blowing #bubbles.

Online retailer Amazon has defied new French legislation that bans the free delivery of books by offering postage for a single centime (1.4 cents). The legislation, which came into force this week, is aimed at preserving French bookshops against the offers available from online booksellers such as Amazon and French retailer FNAC. The law also caps the discounts made by retailers at 5%, in line with existing legislation.
But according to France24, the FAQ page of the French Amazon site now carries the message: “We are unfortunately no longer allowed to offer free deliveries for book orders. We have therefore fixed delivery costs at one centime per order containing books and dispatched by Amazon to systematically guarantee the lowest price for your book orders.”
Geraniums in the early morning light today, a sure sign of summer in Paris, France, even though it’s been quite chilly and wet all week.
