tulips, magdeburg

When we were young children, we all read about the changes various seasons bring to the world around us. But never in Calcutta did I get to feel it so much! During the winter, the skeleton of the tree remains, which comes to life with the first leaves of Spring. The flower blooms, birds come back and their twitter wakes you up in the morning.

In Magdeburg, or the entire of Germany I believe but I am not sure, the government transforms the city into an elaborate garden. There are different flowering plants on the street sides, parking lot, beside the lake, possibly everywhere. It’s vibrant and I feel good; isn’t that what Spring intends?

There’re Japanese Cherry blossom trees planted at different places, one inside our campus and one outside; but an entire street lined with the cherry blossom trees is more than what I could have asked for! There’s a history to it, which you would get with a simple Google search.

Early in the morning, a friend of mine accompanied me to Holzweg where the street is lined with the Japanese Cherry Blossom Trees.

The Japanese Cherry Blossom Trees are called Sakura. These trees are said to bring inner peace to people in Japan. After the German reunification, money was collected to buy these plants and have them in Berlin. Later, I suppose, it caught up with the rest of the country; the most famous for the cherry blossom trees being Bonn.

Apart from them are the Tulips, Chrysanthemum, and various other flowers the names of which I do not know. I recently saw rose plants being brought. The colors are varied – white, pink, red, purple, yellow and what not? You couldn’t find any place which does not have a flowering plant. People have decked their garden; the flowering plants come for as cheap as one Euro.

That’s the canopy!

With the sun coming out and the temperature rising, the people come out as well! You can see people in Magdeburg! Most of them stay outdoor and I’m told, observing people is a celebrated hobby. Not creepy. Outside the campus buildings or hotels or the marketplace, you’d see people sitting lazily with friends and coffee. Life’s good.

Yours Truly thought of photographing a bit around! Not the people, because I am not sure how legal that would be!
