Cycle Life Challenge Ride 4: Cherry Blossom Time

Challenges: flora, fauna and a haircut
The cherry blossoms on the tree next to our building are lovely, I can touch them from where I stand on our balcony. But I can’t get a picture of them with my bike so I had to ride around a bit to find a view of the cherry blossoms where I could include my bike.

Janos joined me and we headed for the Olympic Park. I challenged him to take a picture that he hadn’t taken before.

The cherry blossoms on the hill in the park are new in my posts, too.

And what was the purchase of the day? I plunked down Euros for a haircut.

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. I have three kids and eight grandchildren - so I'm pretty old. Cycling, photography and walking are my favorite things.

    Nicely done Suzanne! Our trees are blossoming quite nicely now as well.

    A great CLC purchase as well. Lookin’ good!

    You’re looking sharp, Suzanne. I swear at some point I’ll be riding my bike again. Maybe before hell freezes over, at least.

    Nice cherry trees, but are you sure that tiny thing is really a fauna? Pretty hard to be certain from the photo.

    Lovely haircut. I liked the photo of Janos in Olympic Park. You can take photos there every day and I’d be happy.

    Weather-wise, I always thought of Germany as being the Minnesota of Europe–cold, gray and wintry for half of the year. Now that I’ve seen Rich’s message, it seems Germany isn’t even the Illinois of Europe. Germany looks beautiful in the springtime. Maybe Iceland is the Minnesota of Europe.

    I’m quite certain it will be at least a month before I see any kind of a bloom in my town, and probably two months before my crabapple tree blooms. It’s the prettiest time of the year in my yard when the crabapple tree is in bloom. The other 51 weeks of the year, the crabapple tree is pretty darn ugly.
