Â Or I guess I could say, We never really had winter. It has all been rather strange. One day it got very cold and I had my heavy winter coat on along with a hat, scarf and gloves. Three days later all I needed was a light cotton coat. Now, March and April can be “cruel” as some poem says and it’s not over yet, but it looked like Spring on a walk I took last week.

Â There is an old abandoned railroad track that has been transformed into an elevatedÂ walkway with plants and flowers everywhere. It is called Promenade Plantee and is a wonderful place to stroll around when the sun is out. It is just a short walk away from Place de la Bastille. Here isÂ some very unusual architecture seen from the walkway:
Â The first time I saw this I was reminded of the trophy for winning an oscar for some reason. It took awhile for my brain to realize that they are all copies of The Dying Slave by Michaelangelo. Why there are there, I don’t know but it makes for intriguing architecture.
Â They continue on for quite a while.
