Where to See Paris in Bloom

Paris in the Spring is one of my favorite times to visit for so many reasons. There is a buzz in the air after being inside over Winter. The terraces are packed with people from lunch to way past happy hour and the city starts to bloom. It begins with the magnolia blossoms, followed by apple blossoms, cherry blossoms, and then finally chestnut blossoms. Paris is sprinkled with different shades of pink from March through May and it is absolutely beautiful. Don’t forget the white blossom trees and the purple wisteria too.

Apple Blossoms

When I first arrived in Paris, I thought these were cherry blossoms. I had never seen cherry blossoms and I didn’t know what to expect. Apple blossoms are smaller and cherry blossoms are light and fluffy and a lot bigger.

  1. These pics are lovely – Paris is so magical in bloom. My very 1st trip to Paris was from late April into early May – the city went from Rainy and dismal to sunny and in bloom, seemingly overnight

  2. Your article on Paris in bloom was gorgeous. I’m on my way to Japan and hope to catch some blossoms there. Isn’t spring glorious?
