Pink Spring Blossoms in Milan

Spring Blossoms in Milan Italy

Springtime in Milan, Italy is a time of stunning pink flower blossoms, as I think the photographs here I took this Sunday in early April show.

Aside from running great distances, people were even eating outside today. It was not that warm initially, but then it warmed up – leaving me with a sun reddened face.

Seeing that the weather looked promising, I duly armed myself with my Canon and photographed a few of the blossoms which are heralding an end to the winter and brightening up the city no end.

Here are some of the photographs I took today.

First, a blossom with the statues atop Milan’s Arco della Pace in the background:

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

More blossoms. These splendid pink blossoms were to be found in a street close to Milan’s Arco della Pace arch:

You’ll find blossoms all over Milan. Sometimes they are in unexpected places, but come as a welcome surprise.

Today’s bout of spring weather after what proved to be a rather long and seemingly never ending winter, coupled with one of Milan’s anti-smog traffic bans, plus the annual Milan marathon, encouraged quite a few people to take advantage of the weather and take to Milan’s pleasant Sempione Park. By the way, Milan’s marathon attracted over 13,000 entrants this year.

Early springtime is a good time for those who like photography to come to Milan!

Not Enough Italians are Doing it For Themselves

While one man appears to be wasting an inordinate amount of time, not to mention tax payers money, over a piddling little wiretap law, and others, often young Italians, don’t seem to be trying to help themselves, others are rolling up their sleeves and preparing for the future by doing business training courses.
