Update: Please note new date and time - as the trees are apparently developing their blossoms quickly and are expected to bloom during this week of 9 April.
In any case, there are a few early flowering trees already out!
NOTE: the date of this meetup might change, depending on the blossoms on the cherry trees. On[masked], we found one tree flowering in a small side street, but the others are still tightly wrapped up for winter.
Apparently among the things to see before you die, the cherry trees in Bonner Altstadt are quite famous!
You can see some photos and regular updates on blossom development here http://www.kirschbluete-bonn.de/
We will meet at 2.30pm on the Altstadt side of the Oxford Ring street level with Stadthaus U-bahn stop (corner Breite Str). Although it might be crowded, this gives opportunities to be creative about how to get interesting shots (without infringing on privacy rights in Germany).
If we run out of cherry blossom inspiration, we can always visit the old cemetary which is right nearby and has some old graves (including Beethoven's mother).
Looking forward to it!
