April Afternoon

This was an April afternoon. This tree, the meeting place for so many people everyday, nature loving people, that come sit on the bench under it waiting for someone dear or enjoying an ice cream. Petals fall like snow in a summer day, while you enjoy this view surrounded by blushing pink blossoms.

It’s Planten und Blumen, the botanical garden, close to the Hamburg Harbor, situated at Dammtor Messe. Just the other day I was waiting for a friend on one of these benches when I saw two ducks flying above close, the friendly inhabitants of the lake here.

The lake, by the Japanese house, with its big gate and red traditional columns, that reflect the water, showcasing the sunset Japan is known for, so warm and serene, inviting you to just stop, sit and breathe, having a soul soothing moment, an oasis in the middle of the metropole.
Close to the Japanese house by the lake, you find the cherry trees. The colors and perfumes brought through these plants, through architecture and landscape architecture, is a replenishing oasis of an Asian corner of the world, right here.

Not far from the cherry blossoms we find yet another delight into this Asian oasis. Whether the origin of these plants is Asian in fact, one thing is certain, there is something spell-biding in the air.

This was an April afternoon. With sun rays and flowers, with spring perfumed air and ground covered with petals, nature’s way of making each season memorable.

Sunny or cloudy above, there are stories all around, moments to capture. Thank you, Hamburg!

All the love,
