La Roseraie

The rose garden (la roseraie) in the Parc de la Tête d’Or has an abundance of flowers at the moment.

This is a fairly familiar scene, especially as the weather warms up; people dotted around restaurant terraces to have a quick coffee, or to linger a little and watch life pass in the square.
