one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
The back wall of a private parking place just below the Monastery of l'Annonciade in Menton.
c'est un parking réservé au deux roues ;o) bien vu la photo.
I could happily retyre here. My favourite splash of purple.
Wonderful capture here. Good facade here
Very good idea, especially for drivers-beginners ;-)
Good place to park there, also two missing tires :)
A lovely place and the sign isn't bad there either but the tires spoil the flowers. Still, if left there very long the flowers will, eventually, cover the tires up.It is a lovely set of blooms.
Whoops? What does PRIVE mean?
It means Private, Abe. it's one in a group of parking places outside a block of apartments.
Those two tires look like two big mouths, open-wide, in a state of wonder...as if they are searching for the rest of the car. This is such a cleverly composed shot, Jilly.
The bishop's car park, maybe?
I like the contrast between the old tyres and the beautiful blooms. Great splash of colour too!
Gorgeous bougainvillea. I don't know if in french it is called bougainvillier.
The tree is absolutely stunning. I love the petals on the ground!
Love the (what is it?) bougainvillea; one of my favorite colors. And the tires stand in contrast!
What kind of flowers are these? Whatever they are, what a great way to beautify a parking lot.Thanks Jilly!David
To everyone who asked, this is bougainvillea. This is the most common colour and grows very vigorously. In French, it's almost the same - bougainvillee (with an accent).
That's the funniest photograph! What a great find.
I feel that the sign and tires, altho realistic of the modern world, are an intrusion interfering with glorious nature. It's a wonderful capture to depict society.
How beautiful. I love bougainvillea (of course it's far too cold for it up here,apart from in the greenhouses in the Botanic Gardens).
