The best thing about spring, beside the bluer skies and warmer temperatures is how nature suddenly blooms, spreading an incredible bouquet through the trees in the form of cherry blossom. I spotted this pretty tree while cycling through the 11ème yesterday on the way back home from a photo assignment, in front of a not so aesthetically pleasing 70's building. Photos of these fluffy pink, cotton candy-esque blooms are going to be popping up on blogs and Instagram all over the world, so I'm knowingly jumping on the bandwagon here, but how can I not take photos when nature throws this kind of beauty at me and I have a camera in my bag?!
Before the pretty blossoms completely vanish from Paris, I thought I better post these photos of the pink and white candy floss trees at Jardin des Plantes that I took a couple of weeks ago. Paris is beautiful this time of year, when the trees suddenly burst into colour. There are little pockets of blossom all around Paris - with these being some of the most photographed trees in Paris. But you can see why. Scroll down for an overdose of blossom!
