Beaune in bloom each springBeaune is a great place for wine, shopping and a huge Saturday market, and it bursts with color in spring, when flowers bloom on many corners and squares. There's a municipal contest in the region, and towns vie for supremacy. This display was photographed in mid-May at the intersection of Rue Monge and Rue Carnot; it's only one of many throughout the city, so even if the weather is gray - not uncommon that time of year - the surroundings are cheerful and bright.
