Cherry Blossoms in the Meadows

The Meadows in Edinburgh are famous for their cherry trees and rightly so. They are so beautiful when they're fully in bloom as they are now. Photos from yesterday's lunchtime walk.

but they don't last long and the first blossoms are already falling

So if you're in Edinburgh this weekend is an ideal time to visit The Meadows!

And while you're there admiring the cherry blossoms, don't forget to look out for the more subtle beauty of the maple flowers (this is a Norway maple, slightly past its best)

and the Wych elms

Beautiful! Having moved back South, most of the blossoms have already passed for the season.

Brings back memories. An old mate used to live in a tenement right next to it (them?). I stayed over quite often in those days, en route to and from the Highlands, where, over the years, we bagged a few Munros together and relived a few 1930s rock climbs.

Blossom is very ephemeral, here the fruit tree flowers have gone but hawthorn still in bloom

Those blossoms look so lovely.
Enjoy them while you can!

All the best Jan
