Rouge de Bordeaux

On Sunday I took a soothing walk around the Jardin des Plantes. It was a beautiful spring afternoon, beginning to feel more like summer.

I was excited to spot this tree on the edge of the botanical school gardens:

A funny broad fig tree, happy in the brilliant sunlight! He had a nametag too:

The nametag

The Rouge de Bordeaux, I imagine, refers to its fruit. Perhaps we’ll see some soon and can judge for ourselves.
