On a very grey and chilly Monday morning last week, before any of the shops and cafes opened, I visited the Bonner Altstadt to see the cherry blossoms in bloom. As I walked under the canopy of pink flowers, I photographed the trees on the quiet Breite Straße and soaked in the beauty of springtime in Germany. It's my absolute favorite time of year.
Every evening the sky's hues of peach, pink and lavender are reflected into the Rhine below. It's the perfect backdrop for a summer stroll along the river path.
