Jardin des Plantes

Hi Loves,

My Parents were in Paris last week, so we have been to the Jardin des Plantes which is in the 5th arrondissement of the city of love 💜💕✨ This outfit is composed of a Zara white blouse, a Mango black skirt with opaque black tights, a pair of H&M black ballerina and a Rebecca Minkoff black crossbody bag with a lot of zip 😆 On my lip I was wearing the Lime Crime Velvetines in the shade Cashmere, a grey-brown / greige kind of color 💋✨ The Lime Crime are one of my favorites liquid lipstick because they don’t dry to fast during the application and they are long lasting. You should try them 😉

Floating Ferns

A honey bee drinks from a drop of water trapped in the bristly leaf of a floating fern.

This South American native doesn’t look like a typical fern and doesn’t behave like one either.   379 more words

Plant Portraits


The insects in the Jardin des Plantes are spoilt for choice.  Flowers in all shapes and sizes have nectar on offer but there’s no doubting the bumblebees’ current favourites: bright yellow flowers in the daisy family. 117 more words

Looking to the Evolution museum

Sadly no guesses at the Sunday Teaser this week, but here’s the full image that looks down Jardin des Plantes towards the Grande Galerie de l’Evolution at the other end. 11 more words
