Cherry Blossom

Last spring we visited the Cherry Tree Park in Roihuvuori where are about 150 trees. I’m not sure about the number of threes as I have found different numbers but there are many. Next Sunday there is held and event Hanami festival. We probably will go there.

Today I saw the most wonderful cherry tree in Konala not far away from us. Compared to this one the ones in the park in Roihuvuori still are babies. They need many more years to grow this size.Cherry Blossom IMG_0947CCCherry Blossom IMG_0940CC

The two above pictures were shot in the morning about 9 am and the three below in the afternoon at about 3:30 pm.

    i just saw one too in Lehtisaari! it’s gorgeous and i immediately took a picture of it too, haha!

    then i remembered the one you posted about last year, and told my husband. it would be nice to go to Roihuvuori this year to see it, but the weather forecast is saying it would be rainy this weekend. 😦

      Yes, you can see them here and there nowadays. I can’t remember seeing any in the 60’s, 70’s or so. On the other hand I may not have paid attention at the time. Unfortunately the weather forecast for Sunday doesn’t look good ! I hope the weather Gods will change their mind.
