My intention was to make the second post about the Luxembourg Palace, but it will have to wait a few days. When it snows in Paris, I feel that you just must report on it.
After a snowfall, normally the parks are closed, at least until sanding / salting has been made … and as the snow normally disappears after a few days or hours…
Last Saturday, one of the gates of “my park” was under repairs and had not been well closed. So…
One tree was well protected, sleeping indoors, no ice on the little lake so the birds seemed happy, nobody was sitting on the benches (so nice a sunny spring day)…
The kids – some may have discovered snow for the first time – of course enjoyed it all.
A number of snowmen were made, the nicest perhaps by two English teens, to a large part thanks to the carrot which I incidentally found on the ground and offered them.
… and then, just a closer look.
That was Saturday.
Sunday morning, more snow ... and the park was really closed.
Some Sunday views from “my” streets. Hardly any cars left their parking places and the streets became pedestrian, so far to the pleasure of most people, especially the kids.
This was Sunday, but Monday the city is again supposed to “work”. The weather forecast gives some reasons to worry.
