Poppies, daisies, dusty millers and primulas all mixed up on a small mound at the side of the road

No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

Purple pansies, yellow Primulas, blue Forget me nots and a couple of tulips in the Square du Vert Galant in Paris.
Just the place for a picnic in hot  and sunny Paris  in April

By coincidence I'm reading The Bones of Paris, a crime book by Laurie King set in Paris in 1929, in which the square du Vert Galant features quite frequently - I'll visualise it with your primulas etc next time it crops up!
