Cherry blossom time

Rumor had it yesterday – or was it the day before? – that the cherry trees in Kungsträdgården in Stockholm now were blooming. So I decided to take my camera and go into town after todays’ gym session.

Apparently some other people also had the same thought… Don’t people work on an ordinary Monday?  Not all of them were tourists, even though there were quite a lot of tourists too. Everyone was taking pictures. Both of the flowers and of themselves with flowers. Some actually took branches with flowers on with them… which I find really bad to do.

All these pink flowers are quite overwhelming…

I am glad I went to watch them today. They are almost done and if it rains tonight, as is said it will, they will soon be gone. This roof of pink flowers… wow! I’ve never visited before when it has been cherry blossom time. The blooming is so short that you have to hurry if you want to see it. It is easy to miss the few days it lasts.
