Most time of my life I had the feeling that I never enjoyed the springtime properly. I always had (and have) to do urgent things during that season. Taking photos for a long while now, I can't offer you great scenes of flowering landscapes. And anyway, autumn is my favored time to follow this hobby. But by chance, looking for some other stuff, I found this photo in a "not yet tidied corner" of my archives. Yes, more urban minded as I am, that means spring for me. I had this sight for many spring times when I crossed the road there. Just a row of cherry trees. Again, urban minded as I am, I'm not sure about the kind of trees. Could also be, they are Almond trees. However, it doesn't matter as long as they are flowering.
Behind the trees you see one of the two stair cases of the Horeb school. I spent there the end of the sixties. Can you imagine that students had been parted by confession and gender then? So it doesn't wonder that I can't remember my neighbor of the same age went there to school at the same time - he's an catholic.
I adjusted the photo to give the building a vertical corner. Then I cropped, re-sized and sharpened it. And a little color adjustment was also done.

Hi Roland. After you River of tears shots it is nice to see some life and hope, although again the note carries the weight of history and sectarianism. Prolific blossoms of anew generation have masked the school and its old ways. Regards. Klaudio.

When I went to school in early sixties there were still some schools in Warsaw for the girls and boys only. But very soon all these schools were for both genders. But not parted by confessions - no need in a society with almost all catholic. But my school was proud of being the first lay school in Warsaw. BTW, and to what school you went?
Beautiful row of pink blossoming trees. Probably cherries but maybe almonds, they are also pink.

I hate to do this, but with very limited free time at the moment, please pardon my ‘copy & paste’ note. I really wanted to respond to as many as possible before this next week really gets away from me. With no time for details unfortunately, I can still say this image is one that I find quite enjoyable. :) All the best to you and yours for a Happy Easter. Take care.

Your fine photo reminds me of a place in Copenhagen.
The blooming thees with a "sphere" of green in front of the school make a very nice composition. School buildings ewake memories and feelings in anybody who attended one.
