Central Paris isn’t the obvious place to look for native wild flowers but there’s a surprising variety to be found.  Some are self sown and are overlooked or welcomed, others are deliberately planted to enhance biodiversity.  Where the patch is large enough, insects of all sorts seek out the flowers and birds follow to eat the insects.  Click on any of these pictures to find out more about them or follow the extra links below.
