Blossom on the Berlin Wall Trail

North along the Berlin Wall Trail from Bornholmer Straße, the route runs along the Kolonnenweg between the railway tracks and the allotments. After the wall came down, this stretch was lined with cherry trees that were given to the people of Berlin by the citizens of Japan to mark the occasion. The pictures with the post were taken a little further along the route, close to the Wollankstraße station and the entrance to the Bürgerpark in Pankow, where more cherry trees mark the route – this time sandwiched between the railway and the backsides of the houses on Schulzestraße. It was a beautiful Sunday morning, and the pink against the blue sky was striking. I wish someone would give me a cherry tree as a present, and that I had a garden to put it in…
