As we stroll among the beautiful plants and multicolored flowers, a strange call may first be heard before we see the magnificent peacocks that have proudly taken over the site. Here, the hustle and bustle of Parisian life seems far away. We feel as if we've returned to a tender age, cradled in the carefree days of yesteryear.
