Cherry tree blooming

Does this look familiar? Yes, it’s the same place where the oleander bushes used to grow, just from the opposite end. And here you can find perhaps the only cherry tree in Nîmes (at least it’s the only one I’ve seen), and it’s blooming! It’s a Japanese cherry tree, so it won’t bear any fruit. Only the flowers are to be enjoyed. A picnic maybe? A one-cherry-hanami!

The tree is still very young, but already so beautiful. The building behind is for the gardeners. After the rainy days the sun is again warming, birds singing and butterflies flying around… Spring is so nice here!
