One day, an American artist whose name is Corita Kent said “flowers grow out of dark moments”. Yes, these lovely flowers in Paris bloom again this spring at the end of the long long, and cold winter, as every year. And one day, we believe that we'll be able to enjoy a bloomy moment at the end of this long long situation, traveling in the attractive city, Paris. So we would like to show you where to admire the bloomy Parisian vibes when you come back here. (In the photo above, you can see the flowers in Champ de Mars in late March).
Let's start with the iron lady representing Paris. In Jardin du Trocadéro across the Seine river, cherry blossoms on each side of the garden will be a nice element for your Eiffel Tower photos in spring. We advise visiting here in the early morning to avoid many people. The flowers bloom in mid-April.
Address : Place du Trocadéro et du 11 Novembre, 75016 Paris
If you prefer the magnolia to cherry blossom, Jardin de Tuileries can be a nice choice. As it's just next to the Louvre museum and Places de la Concorde, you will surely pass by here. If you come to Paris in mid-March, it won't be difficult to find this place.
Address : Place de la Concorde, 75001 Paris
If you head in the opposite direction of the Jardin des Tuileries from the Louvre museum, You'll also meet magnolia and other beautiful flowers in this adorable place. This place is frequently used as a filming location such as Emily in Paris recently, which means it's one of the best places where you can feel the Parisian vibes.
Address : 8 Rue de Montpensier, 75001 Paris
Grande Mosquée is one of the secret gardens in Paris. Particularly in late April - early May, beautiful wisteria flowers bloom on the walls of the garden. This exotic beauty will make you feel like to be a princess in a mystery palace. We recommend visiting in the morning.

Odette near Notre Dame de Paris is a good photogenic bloomy place in the Latin Quarter in spring. This is famous for its cute choux. if you are going to visit near Notre Dame(even if it's under construction), you'll have to stop by here to take a look and taste good choux.
