A sign that spring is coming is the sunny days we are having right now in Paris. We decided to stroll up to the Sacré-Cœur in Montmartre to catch the first signs of spring. No leaves on the trees yet but the colourful flowers growing under a perfect blue sky with the Sacré-Cœur in the distance was a lovely view. Here are a few photos taken in March on a Sunny day in Montmartre
Springtime on a Sunny day in Montmartre
On a perfect sunny day in Montmartre we spotted these Spring flowers in the Square Louise Michel. The place is a steep green area that reaches the monumental church of Sacré-Cœur perched atop the Hill of Montmartre. There is a funicular reaching the top of the hill but we prefer climbing on foot in order to take these photos!
On its left (or East) side, the square looks more like a garden with lawns, shrubs and trees.
Can you hear the birds singing? We are in Central Paris!
