White Cherry Blossoms in Frankfurt

It was just the beginning of spring when I was in Frankfurt in the first week of April. The trees seemed to getting ready with their colorful drapes. Even the plain white cherry blossom blooms were a sight to behold. The trees bursting with white cherry blooms looked like little white clouds. The tender shoots and buds in each branch indicated there is more that I was going to miss when I move out of Frankfurt.

Cherry Flower is the unofficial national flower of Japan and they have more than one hundred varieties of this. The ones I got to see in Frankfurt are the five petal blossoms. One of the famous Hanami (the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the beauty of cherry blossoms) of Germany is in Hamburg, may be I will be able to visit it some day when spring is at its peak. For the present, for you and me, I have these shots to enjoy.
