spring fever


Have I already told you how much I love spring? These days I'm high on cherry and magnolia blossoms. Sometimes I wish time could just stand still so the blossoms could stay a little longer.

I took these photos in the Den Brandt Park of Antwerp yesterday. Our children's school has this yearly run (here is last year's post) and while the children were running we had a picnic under gorgeous cherry trees. Unfortunately, I had caught a mild cold but I didn't let it spoil the moment. But when we came back home I was in bed with fever so I'm just relaxing today. I think it'll pass quickly. I'm probably just dealing with a spring overdose. wink

Have a beautiful day!

  3. Það er ekkert meira "útlönd" en þegar ég sé kirsuberjatré í blóma. Stefnan er að fá sér eitt í sumar í minn garð. Kannski lægir það aðeins flakkaraþörfina.. eða eykur hana. Sjáum til.

  9. Totally understand and share your love for those sweet petals and spring. I get in a garden every morning just for a few minutes just to look at them and stick my nose in this pink cloud of flowers. Can't get enough. :)

  12. Sounds like the perfect way to spend the day. Wish I didn't work in an office. Just keep longing for the lovely sunshine.

    The cherry trees here are almost blooming. A few more days and they will be at their most beautiful. The beauty of the faded pink against a beautiful blue sky is incredible. :)

  14. I love spring, too! And how gorgeous it must be in Antwerp right now. Your photos tell the story beautifully. Our cherry blossoms are a bit behind this year and we are having incessant rain. grr. But that will change soon.

    Wishing you a sunny, blossomy weekend, Lisa! xo – g
