Cherry Blossom at Paris Jardin des Plantes

Catch me a Cherry Blossom in Paris

Although most deciduous trees in the Jardin des Plantes are still bare-branched, you can't miss the cherry trees (and related species such as apple, pear) blooming in a riot of white and pink! The most remarkable must be the Japanese Cherry Shirotae (Prunus serrulata shirotae) along the central main allée, with its low branches that seem to ply under the weight of a thousand white flowers.
