Paris was surprisingly green and luscious for January. Prior to our arrival the temperature had gone as high as 15 degrees and many of the trees had already started to form buds. And The last day of 2015 was really warm and beautiful. So warm that I had to remove my scarf, whenever we found ourselves in the sunny part of the park.
We went by the cherry tree gardens at Parc de Sceaux. Last time I was there they were in full bloom, but this day - fortunately - there were only branches to see. It would be a bit creepy to have full blooming cherry trees in December.
