One of my favourite things about living in Paris is experiencing the changing seasons. Each season is so distinct from each other and as the next one approaches it often takes you by surprise. One day the trees will have bare branches and the next you will be greeted with delightful pops of colour.
Spring has well and truly come into bloom in Paris, with full green trees and a multitude of gorgeous flowers scattered all over the city. Much like the Champ de Mars this is particularly the case at Square Jean-XXIII. A lovely, small square on the left bank side of the Notre Dame Cathedral.
Cherry blossom season has been on my mind ever since moving to Paris and it is even more special than I imagined. Being surrounded by fluffy flower clouds and looking up at the intricate French Gothic architecture of the Notre Dame Cathedral is an experience I will never forget.
