Early blooms in the Parc are present in this area. The Parc is planted strategically to reveal seasonal varieties throughout the warm months in planned blooms. It was the most beautiful and unspoiled parc I have ever seen. It is housed inside the infamous Bois de Boulogne, commissioned in 1852 by Napoleon III. Later into the season, thousands of roses bloom.

Location: Parc de Bagatelle, outskirts of Neuilly Sur Seine, Paris, France
