Spring in its full bloom at Stockholm.
The first time I saw the blossom in cherry trees last year at Stockholm. I was amazed to see the beauty of nature. Not able to describe its awesome beauty in words, I only adored the magic by intensely watching it.
Fortunately, this year again I've got the golden chance to admire the creation of Almighty. So, this time I will leave no stone unturned in sharing the experience of feeling beautiful nature from closest.
When does this magic take place? The cherries usually blossom in the end of April or start of May every year. This time we are lucky to have them since 19th of April. It gives lovely visual sign for the start of spring season. The sunny and warm days are on the horizon. It seems like trees are greeting to summer and warmth, which arrives after a long wait in this extremely cold place.
With the cherry blossom, everyone in the city senses a sudden enthusiasm. People spend time with friends and families, they love being out in Sun. Obviously as they hardly get sunny days. I and my husband have realised the value of Sun after coming to Stockholm. It is fun to have a lunch under the flowery trees or simply lie down and cherish them. I being a writer, enjoy reading, writing and thinking of ideas while sitting under them.
The loveliest view is at kungstragarden, which is located in the centre of the city. Before few years, 63 'Sakura' trees were planted here. These cherry trees were brought from Japan. The densest view of this natural show, can be seen here. In other parts of the city, these trees are in small groups. If cold temperature is maintained, the flowers survive for 7 to 8 days. Or else, if it is too hot then we have them for 3 to 4 days. They need cold weather to flourish. The beauty of these cherry trees is must watch if you are in Stockholm during this time.
