Who doesn’t enjoy a bit of folly, in the garden, on the street, or anywhere?

The Festival des Jardins de Rues de Lyon (Garden Festival on Streets of Lyon, France) hasn’t happened again since 2006, but I loved them so much, I wanted to share the range of imaginative follies that were installed along the streets of this picturesque French city. Enjoy the virtual tour!
