Gardens here never close. Even in the winter, you can go in the Jardin du Luxembourg and sit in one of those famous green chairs or even go on a terrace and have a coffee with outdoor heating to toast you up. The first sign of spring here is not defined by the opening of the first terraces like on St-Denis, but by the blooming of trees and flowers which to my memory is way earlier than back home. Trees were already blooming last week in the Jardin du Palais Royal near the Louvre. Lovely sunny day off.

Indeed, Spring in Paris...quite special. Nothing like it. Well, almost.
It's Easter Sunday, and our backyard trees are barely blooming.
Lucky you!
Enjoy while you still can.
Bonne fin de séjour dans la ville Lumières!!
