Cherry Blossoms in Paris


Ahh, Paris in the spring. It really is as beautiful as they say it is. On Saturday morning I decided to take a walk/jog through the Luxembourg gardens. The jogging part failed because I also brought my camera and that meant I was constantly stopping to take pictures. So while I may have not hit my target heart rate (who am I kidding, the only time I do that when I’m climbing the seven flights to our flat!), the scenery more than made up for it.

I love the coat hangers for the boccé players.

    I’m so happy that you paused…the photos are just beautiful. I’ve been to Paris in the spring but in late April. Thank you for sharing so that I got a chance to see the lovely cherry blossoms.

    Oh, thank you for this! It is just what I needed to pack more specifically. I think I would have forgotten some running shoes! (or brisk walking shoes, more likely!). Only two weeks away! Your photos are beautiful! Love the perspective. Are those bee hives?

    Beautiful! I do so love Paris! Two important (to me) things I still need to see/experience – Paris in the spring and a White Christmas in Europe. Enjoy Becca! :)

    What is it about flowering trees that so enthrall us!! I love flowering trees and cherry blossoms in Paris look soooooooooooooo beautiful and blissful. Wish I was there. My daughter says the cherry trees are also blooming in Japan and it “snows” on her as she walks to school. She loves it!!
    Hugs,
