 A whirlwind weekend trip to Nice with Cori Spezzati left only a few hours on Sunday morning to see the city, but I made the most of it by swimming in the mediterranean....
 Le Negresco hotel, where we sang one of our 2 concerts.

June gardens

No roses were blooming in early June in the roseraie at the Parc de Bagatelle...
...but there were peonies, at least.
 And in the gardens at Versailles, I saw hardly any flowers at all....
but lots of green, and statues, and plenty of pools and fountains, including the magnificent water display pictured below.
The grand canal was an oasis of peace and quiet and shade, on this 90 degree day.
