Spring in Paris


My monthly post has just been published on MyFrenchLife. This time, it’s about spring. We’ve been cooped up and wrapped up for so long now that the warmer temperatures, new leaves and blossoms and blue skies feel like heaven!

      Thank you! I’ve sent an email to Parc de Sceaux to see whether the blossoms are out.

      Looking forward to tonight and the new pub quiz experience!

  2. Love your new photo at the top of your pages. Absolutely gorgeous.

    I love ‘the local park’ shots you post.
