The sun is shining and the flowers are blooming, spring has sprung in France! Take a look at how stunning France is in the spring

You know spring has arrived when tulips start popping up in the public parks and gardens, like here in Paris.

Or when the blossoms appear in the trees like these ones in front of the Parlement of Brittany in Rennes.

It’s also time to go en terrasse again and enjoy an apéritif outside!

A glass of wine on a bed of flowers anyone?

Beach days are getting closer...

It’s also the beginning of festival season! Le Printemps Solidaire for example, taking place in Paris, with concerts on floats driving down the Champs-Elysées.

There are those who embrace spring like it’s summer already with a seafood platter in Cap Ferret...

...and others just soaking up the sun in the gorgeous Tuileries gardens in Paris.

French canals open in spring after closing for the winter – the perfect opportunity for a punt on the water or a stroll on the riverbanks.

Yes, spring really has everyone smiling, even this street art in Bordeaux!
