When I cycled through Munich these days on the hunt for the most beautiful blossoms and blooms I passed this house and immediately stopped, looked at this lovely cherry tree and thought: what a lucky house this must be with a tree such as this one in front of it...
Houses can have the most impressive or most beautiful interior with lots of precious art and decorative elements but nothing compares with the decorative jewels of Mother Nature. Everything becomes irrelevant with a view such as this:
I take this as an opportunity to refer you to my Blooms and Blossoms blog, which is exclusively (almost) dedicated to - who would have guessed - blooms and blossoms photography.
What's so special about this you may ask. The peculiarity about this blog is that all photos shown here have been shot since early 2006, during many walks and cycling through the cities of Munich and my hometown Freiburg and countryside only. No exotic city involved, no parks, no botanical gardens, but only very "ordinary" neighbours' gardens or fields within a range of a few miles.
I must admit that I was amazed about the beauties you could find in those sometimes tiny gardens. This was only possible by walking or cycling through the narrow streets. It is not possible to discover all this by car. So if you are living in a residential area and you think there is nothing to discover you might be surprised. Just give it a try even if it does not look promising at first sight... And this applies not only to neighbours' gardens but to nearly anything.
