Hanami in Switzerland

Trees are blooming here in Switzerland right now. With all the flowers everywhere, one can feel the town waking up from an unusually long winter.

Last year in April, I was in Tokyo and could enjoy Hanami to its fullest. The beautiful Sakura-trees where blooming everywhere. I was a tad sad, when I saw this years Hanami pictures from my friends in Japan.

This week, I got at least a little glimpse of Hanami at the Japanese embassy here in Switzerland. Behind a hedge, I couldn't get close to them, but still managed to get one more or less decent shot.
