Path to Paris
It's the birthday of Josephine Baker, one of the greatest entertainers of the past century.
Josephine's path led her to Paris where she became an instant sensation. By 1929, she was the highest-paid entertainer in Europe.
Baker bought a Château just outside of Paris and she loved to garden there. She also loved to throw glamorous parties on the lawns of the estate which were flanked by magnolia trees and the enormous rhododendrons. The property boasted its own orchards, multiple greenhouses, vegetable plots, and even a rivulet.
