Picture Perfect: A Tale of Paris in the Spring

Take a walk through Paris in the Spring and you’ll feel like you’re strolling through a never-ending garden. The once-bare trees lining the Seine are now filled with blossoming flowers.

The pink cherry blossoms and magnolias pop against the soft blue and grey hues of Parisian architecture. Red wine gives way to Rosé as terraces take up more and more sidewalk space, and café chairs line up on every street corner.

Picnic blankets are spread out in parks and amorous teenagers set up camp on benches throughout the city. Lovers stroll under the warm sun, children laugh and fountains gurgle. The magic of Spring is just beginning.

Wondrous moments of atonement in Paris. I felt them too a few years ago…and there is nothing like the spring blossom in Paris…

[…] Picture Perfect: A Tale of Paris in the Spring (HiP Paris Blog) – Ah, Paris in the spring time. I would love to be there to see these beautiful blooms in person! […]

This takes me back to my last spring time in Paris! This is definitely the most breathtaking time of year there. Oh how I miss it! Here are some of my own photos from when I was living there, just around the corner from le Jardin du Luxembourg:

I was lucky enough to experience a hint of spring during my visit…so beautiful! Is there anything better than April in Paris?!

The blossom this year is just beautiful, such stunning photographs! The warm weather this year has given us a fabulous spring!…xv

Every scene is more gorgeous than the next. I can’t wait for Spring to arrive here, although it won’t be as lovely as Paris. Very exciting time of year, especially to be in Paris. Thanks for sharing.

Loving every moment of this wonderful spring in Paris. Thanks Rebecca for capturing it so nicely.
