In this photo taken within the Champs Elysees Gardens you can see people taking refuge from the sun on a bright day by sitting down on a bench or on the grass beneath the tree.
Despite the Champs Elysees being one of the most well known and busy streets; the gardens which are found half way down are surprisingly quiet, with many places and seats available to sit down and relax and to enjoy the area.
Here you can see some of the many trees and pathways, creating a lovely view as well as shade within the Tuileries Gardens which are a great place to walk through and admire the nature.
Normally missed by tourists visiting the tower there are in fact two very peaceful and quiet gardens which surround the Eiffel Tower along with two ponds and benches available, making for a peaceful and relaxing view.
Here you can see just how green and tidy the Champs Elysees Gardens are, being a peaceful place to sit down and relax, with one of the great restaurants being seen in the background behind the trees.
The homestead on the Somerset West wine estate Vergelegen, a typical Cape-Dutch home.
Looking towards the Hottentot-Holland mountains.
This oak was grown from one of the last acorns from the King Alfred Oak in the gardens of Blenheim Palace in England and was planted here in 1928.
This English oak was planted in the Vergelegen gardens between 1700 and 1706, when the then governor of the Cape, Willem Adriaan van der Stel, owned the property.
