Today’s adventures were white!

About 8 centimetres of snow fell last night, and it’s been cold enough to stay in place all day.

I set off, camera in hand, for a crunchy 2.5 km walk to Le Jardin des Plants (the Botanical Gardens of Paris).

Here are some shots I took along the way. Each has a touch of science or medicine about it.

A statue of a mammoth, covered in snow. As I was taking this photo, a man passing by exclaimed, “Oh, c’est parfait!” (“oh, that’s spot on!”)
