Background: Many a song has been sung and many a poem written about it - yet every year Spring casts its spell afresh over the parks and boulevards of Paris.
As car owners take to the road in search of respite from their city toil, leisurely pedestrians amble along the pavements, looking for nothing in particular.
Children play their games oblivious of the sun-seeking crowds, and it seems to be a good day for selling toy balloons.
The Eiffel Tower reflected in a young girl's glasses ... trees sporting fragrant blossoms... lovers arm-in-arm..Spring has come to Paris.
