We enter the Jardin du Luxembourg
through a forest of neatly aligned trees.
This gives way to the central pond and gardens behind the Luxembourg Palace. . .
. . . and then the palace itself.
We circle around the palace and discover an art exhibit tucked alongside one of the gardens. There are sculptures in glass, stone, and steel –
but my favorite is made of plastic, ordinary plastic household items, to be precise.
In an odd way, this plastic garden fits perfectly here – it’s simply another type of artifice in a garden already filled with artifice.
