We might as well rename this site to "the flower blog" by now. And yes, I apologise since I do realise that there are other things in this world to photograph other than pretty flowers. But how could you not when you arrive in Jardin des Plantes and it looks like this? I mean, come on, I'm only human after all.

This spring the whole city bloomed so early that I was afraid to miss it completely for a second. Luckily I stumbled upon this park (which is one of my favourite parks in Paris) just in time to catch the apple, cherry and all the other blossoms in full bloom. It's so bitter sweet since this is one of the things I look forward to during the whole year, and then after two weeks or so, everything is gone. But I'm not sobbing over here! Now summer is around the corner and nothing makes me happier than to think about that. Even though I miss the pink blossoms around the city (it really puts a smile on your face), Paris looks pretty beautiful in all green too.
