And I’d love to personalize a copy of my book for your Mom for Mother’s Day so you can “take your Mom to Paris!” This book was inspired by my first trip to Paris with my Mom and I’ve always envisioned it as a perfect Mother’s Day gift.

Faded Elegance is a wonderful French home decor and vintage shop in the darling Victorian town of Snohomish, Washington, about 30 minutes north of Seattle. The owner, Kimberly, and I have been friends for years and we’re planning a fantastic day celebrating the beauty of Paris and the joy of spring. We’ll have door prizes and luscious treats, including custom macarons made by Seattle’s star pastry chef, Krystel of Krystel’s Confections.

Cherry Blossoms in Paris

Cherry blossoms in Paris by Georgianna Lane, author of Paris in Bloom

Bonjour, dear friends! This newest report on spring in Paris features the beautiful Kwanzan cherry trees, which are becoming more and more popular throughout the city. The season was very early this year and sadly, the blossoms are nearly gone but I wanted to share with you a tour of some of the beauty of the last few weeks. This first location, Square Jean XXIII at Notre Dame, is one I’ve shared before and is featured on the cover of my book, Paris in Bloom.

The trees beautifully frame one of the rose windows of the cathedral.

When the petals fall, for a day or two, the ground becomes covered in pink “snow.”

I took a copy of the book to visit my trees on the cover. :)

Sweet, poetic images are everywhere, like these delicate blossoms on the vintage bench.

Across the street from Notre Dame is the famous bookstore, Shakespeare and Company. I’m thrilled that my book is for sale here! The tiny square in front of the store has several fairly young cherry trees that add even more romance to the setting.

And through the misty blossoms, you can see the towers of Notre Dame and hear the bells chime on the hour, a magic and unforgettable memory.

This one is Square Gabriel Pierné, a charming and peaceful spot where the benches are in the form of open books.

And lastly, just 20 minutes by train from Paris, lies the darling village of Sceaux and its magnificent Chateau. The massive gardens feature a magnificent orchard of Kwanzan cherry trees which is beyond breathtaking. I was fortunate to visit last year when the blossoms were at their peak. But due to space, the images did not appear in Paris in Bloom.

Therefore, I’m very pleased to share with you a free 32-page e-book that I created to take you on a once-in-a-lifetime tour of this enchanting park. To receive your copy, simply click here and download the PDF. I hope you enjoy it!
