Red Blossoms of the Chestnut Tree

Blossoms of the red chestnut tree

Chestnut trees can be found everywhere in Germany. During the summer they provide nice shadowy places in beergardens; in spring they bloom in white and red. The chestnuts themselves are not to be eaten by humans, but children like to make little puppets out of them or feed them to fenced in boars and deer.

The blossoms of the chestnut trees mark the near end of spring and the slow approach of summer. Just now the weather is not so nice here in Germany, but the weather forecast announces about 25 degrees Celsius for the coming weekend. And that means: summer!

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
