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:

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

Last, but not least in this pink spring series, more pink blossoms brightening up Milan:

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!
