I cannot quite explain to you the amount of joy which cherry blossom brings to me. This year I’m hunting down every cherry blossom tree in Paris and following in the Japanese footsteps of Hanami, an age-old tradition of picnicking underneath blooming cherry blossom. This time Audrey and I met at the Eiffel tower and later found ourselves underneath this beautiful tree which provided a sky of pink confetti above our heads which proved just too pretty not to photograph. If like me, all of these trees are making you desirous for serene landscapes in Japan, then curb your wanderlust with a trip to the Albert Kahn gardens for the prettiest cherry blossom set amongst the dreamiest Japanese gardens.

You can find me on Facebook for more regular updates

Cherry blossoms are so gorgeous, and to see them right by the Eiffel Tower – kinda magical!

I am so happy you commented on my blog, as it has lead me to yours – and it is beautiful! your photos are stunning, and with another trip to Paris coming up I am about to trawl through your back catalogue and Paris guide for things to see, do and photograph when I’m in the city.
