A rainy May day in Ocean Grove. Photograph of parrot tulips  by Eileen Goldfinger and Paul Goldfinger © 5/5/17 Blogfinger.net  Click for the “Jack and the Beanstalk” effect. Title lyric quote from “April Showers.” *

“Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love
You must have showers
So when you hear it thunder
Don’t run under a tree
There’ll be pennies from heaven
For you and me”

The Place Saint-Michel dates back to 1860. The fountain is the center-piece, but the open area around it is where people relax, sit, stroll and socialize. It reminds me of the fountain area in Washington Square Park, Greenwich Village, New York.  It is in the Latin Quarter neighborhood on the Left Bank of Paris.

BOB DYLAN  “These Foolish Things” from his new album Triplicate

Paris is a walking city.  The cafés, parks, fountains, churches, bridges across the Seine, meals in bistros, strolls around town such as in the Isle de la Cité or around Notre Dame—all of it lends itself to romantic moments. The city especially shines at night—it is the City of Lights.  And those moments, as brief or as foolish as they might be, create lasting memories.  The Place de Saint Michel (above) is like that if you just hang around for even 15 minutes.
