Last year and the year before and probably also the year before I said I would not take any more pictures of apple flowers because I have way too many photos of them. I have been photographing them every year since I bought my first digital camera in spring 2001. This time the apples blossomed for a very short time. Once again, I was not able to resist the temptation. I took some photos right before the blossom time was over. Guess what ! Yup, I’m sure there also next year will be photos of apple flowers 😉
My favorite cherry tree is in full bloom.
I’m so happy that I happened to see this three years ago. I still wonder how it is possible I had not noticed it before because the tree must have been there for years. Well, happy I now know 🙂
On Saturday we went to the Sinebrychoff Art Museum. The exhibition the Lure of Italy and the Orient – paintings by Ippolito Caffi ineterested us. The office and home museum of the Sinebrychoff brewing family on the second floor also was very interesting as was the exhibition the Speaking Ruins by the graphic master Piranesi in the Red Cellar. Outside on the sidewalk, on two metal boxes for electrical wires, someone painted these beautiful birds.
As last year we also this year had homemade potato salad with sausages (not homemade) for dinner. The potato salad and sausages are common, traditional May Day food. Last year we had a chocolate mint cheesecake for dessert. Yesterday I made a mojito cheesecake. Delicious. I like the taste of lime, mint and rum.
I hope you all had a great First Of May ! Here, rain was pouring all day. Luckily on the last of April was nice and warm and we were able to open the grill season 🙂
Glad Valborg ! Hauskaa Vappua !
