cherry blossom

The trees in this street are so beautiful when they are in bloom, I sometimes make a detour just to enjoy it.
Everytime when I ride through this street I think that I have to make a picture of it, well I did eventually enjoy the view.

This is a picture from our park.
They call the park "Mollenbos" (mole woods) that is because the park ones belong to a mrs Mole who lived in the big house just outside the park.
Ones a year a big party is kept in the park. Saturday evening their is a big concert.
Sunday morning an other concert from the local brass band, in the afternoon a lot of different activities like pantomime, puppet show, magic show etc.
