Welcome back to some more spring photos! Spring has really taken over my neighborhood. Since I live in an apartment, I like to walk around in the nearby surroundings with nice old villas with their little gardens and take some photos. It has been really hot this last week, so everything is in bloom! Almost everything, that is. Roses and so on will have to wait a few weeks more. But a lot of other stuff is popping up left and right. I have a particular weakness for huge cherry trees, as you will see…  🙂

(Am quite busy at work at the moment, if you are wondering why I’ll be slow to read your lovely blogs and/or comments).

I love the yellow against the blue sky. Same colors as the flag of my country! 🙂

White cloud vs. White wall of flowers!

The largest cherry tree I’ve ever seen! I could barely fit half of it in my picture! It was towering way high up above all the villas in the neighborhood. It is next to a couple of evergreens that must have stood there for at least a century, if not two. Wow!

I get lost in a sea of cherry blossoms!

We must add a bit more color. I like this bush with red flowers, but I have no idea about the name of the flower, especially not in English, sorry!

Doesn’t beauty like this give you hope about life? I find I almost get a spiritual experience from all this beauty around me in spring. Even though I am sort of “agnostic”/doubting, or a “seeker” when it comes to faith, still, thoughts like: “Someone/something must have created all this beauty” pop up in my head. It is just too much beauty to be random, it seems… or, what do you say? Love/Survived
