The Musée Rodin

I love all the museums in Paris, but the Musée Rodin - or rather, the garden - is my favourite.  Today I walked down to the seventh to hang out with Annabelle (where were you, Annabelle?!) and found myself at the museum instead.
Today was beautiful and warm, and tree peonies (!) and lilacs were in full bloom in the main back garden.  That isn't where I like to be, though - or in front where the Thinker is framed in roses.  I like the long, shaded, empty-looking corner to the left of the formal garden.  There the trees are not cut into square shapes and the ground is mossy.  Little clumps of grape hyacinth grow near the overblown holly bush... it's peaceful and quiet and hardly anyone goes back there.  It's the perfect place to read or write or just think...


  1. I've never been there but I'm putting it on my to visit list for next time! :D
    Happy Monday! :D

  2. Hi Bronwyn,

    The museums in Paris are wonderful, never got to see the Rodin though, maybe next time.
    I liked the picture of the garden you shared and must have been lovely to see it.

    Happy week

  3. Where WAS Annabelle?! :) Sounds like a great little corner, I'm not sure I recall it...our visit there was soooo brief though.

  4. i've never been to paris before but i would love to go, the museums do sound beautiful :)

  5. Gabby - it's so beautiful - you'll love it, I promise.
    Carolyn - You should definitely go back!
    Photohogger - I have no idea where she was
    Nesha - the museums are only a little bit of an absolutely incredible city...
