Rose Julio Iglesias

Today in France we celebrate Fête des Mères / Mother's day. I'd like to say Bonne Fête for all mothers of Daily Photo Blog and who ever read this blog.

As a gift I give you 2 fresh roses directly from my garden : The first one is Rose cultivar Julio Iglesias and the second one is Rose cultivar Pierre de Ronsard. I assume many of you knew who is Julio but not Pierre de Ronsard. Pierre de Ronsard (11 September 1524 – December 1585) was a French poet and "prince of poets" (as his own generation in France called him). You could find his complete biography here

Toulouse Rugby

Merci Le Stade - Thank you Stade Toulousain (Toulouse Rugby Team), for wonderful match, even you were not win this time. Yup, unfortunately Stade Toulousain can't have their 4th Trophy of European Rugby Cup. Munster Won 16 - 13. This is the 2nd Tropy for Munster who also won 2 years ago when they play on the final against Biarritz.

I was watching this match together with thousands Toulousains (people of Toulouse) at Place du Capitole, where Mairie de Toulouse (Toulouse Town Hall) put big screen to watch this match together. These are some photos I've made.

Place du Capitole and stade toulousain

This is Place du Capitole with red black flag. When I saw this flag, I thought it was the flag to support earth quake in Myanmar and China. I was totally wrong. It is the flag of Stade Toulousain, the Rugby Team of Toulouse who will play against Munster, The Irish Rugby team on Final of European Rugby Cup this afternoon at Cardiff.

One said, Stade Toulousain vs Munster its like AC Milan vs Real Madrid. Toulouse Town Hall have prepare big screen on Place du Capitole, so Les Toulousains could watch this match together at 18.00 CET. Wanna join me ? Go Toulouse Go, get your 4th Trophy !!!!

This sign mentioned that at that place Duc of Mont Morency was being executed on October 30th, 1632.

Who is Duc de Motmorency? Duc de Mont Morency or Henri II de Montmorency (1595 - October 30, 1632), son of duke Henry I, succeeded to the title in 1614, having previously been made grand admiral. He also was governor of Languedoc.

In 1625 he defeated the French Protestant fleet under Soubise, and seized the islands of Ré and Oleron, but the jealousy of Richelieu deprived him of the means of following up these advantages. In 1628-1629 he was allowed to command against the duke of Rohan in Languedoc; in 1630 he defeated the Piedmontese, and captured Prince Doria, at Avigliana, and took Saluzzo. In the same year he was created marshal.

In 1632 he joined the party of Gaston, duke of Orleans, and placed himself at the head of the rebel army, which was defeated by Marshal Schomberg at Castelnaudary (September 1, 1632); severely wounded, he fell into the enemy's hands, and, abandoned by Gaston, was executed as a traitor at Toulouse on October 30. The title passed to his sister Charlotte-Marguerite, princess of Condé.
