The Garlands are back! (No...not Judy...)

Ok, the following post might seem a bit ridiculous, to the fact that a little detail like this could get me all excited to the point that I*d devote a whole post about it, but hey, I sometimes get excited on the little things in life (+ I already took the pictures)
A few months ago, visitors to the Petit Palais would usually get this view of the interior courtyard as they were sipping their coffee at the courtyard café:
Today, the view was slightly altered, to my own personal joy: The gilded floral garlands hanging between the columns are finally back! The metal garlands had always been a part of the courtyard, but since the petit Palais had reopened many Parisians who were used to this beautiful spot of Paris had noted the absence of the garlands. Well they may rejoice now!

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
