The last flakes?
Here you go! I took this photo this morning on my way to work (well I made a little detour because I knew I had good chances of taking a blockbuster shot!) while the snow had not yet melted. You may have recognized the Luxembourg Gardens with its little kiosk on the left, the Senate at the very back and its big trees. The garden is actually private(!), but open to the public - for it belongs to the Senate, which is in charge of its maintenance. It was "built" (or for? I'm not sure) by Marie de Medicis between 1614 et 1631. More here (French) and here.
