April in Paris! The sun is everywhere. Time to go to the "Jardin des Plantes"

"Jardin des Plantes" with, in the back, the "Grande Galerie de l'Évolution"
These days, the sun is everywhere in Paris. It is time to go in the splendid Parisian parks and gardens.
You may know the "Jardin des Tuileries" and the "Jardin du Luxembourg".
Don't forget the "Jardin des Plantes" less central in Paris. The "Garden of the Plants" is the main botanical garden in France and also a very old park, created in the seventeen century.

Cherry trees, Prunus, flowers, spring in Paris!

The place is magnificent.

A very cold morning for the Stravinsky Fountain in Paris

The Stravinsky Fountain - Niki de Saint Phalle / Jean Tinguely - 1983
Paris, 2014, December 29th. A very cold morning (less than 0°Celsius). See above and below the frozen Stravinsky fountain near the Pompidou center.


The Art pieces still rotate on themselves and continue to throw water. This gives a surprising effect.

If you are in Paris, don't forget to go and see the art of Niki de Saint Phalle in the Grand Palais (until 2015, February 2nd) => http://www.grandpalais.fr/en/event/niki-de-saint-phalle

She did a fantastic and very original work. Amazing exhibition.
See some of her creations:






Go there, it's worth it (book on the Internet before!).

In the garden of the Tuileries, two goats have for mission to crop the sloping lawns... Not really free because of their chains...



This Sunday was a very beautiful day in Paris, really sunny and warm, not so usual in October.
With such a blue sky, the Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre was clearly visible from the Left Bank near the bridge of "La Concorde":
