As I have mentioned earlier in my pervious post that Spring is a season full of spontaneity, But with spontaneity comes different surprises. Right now in Gothenburg, we are experiencing a few moment of sunshine, a few moment of rain and a few moment of gloominess (if that's a word). It does not sound very positive but it is totally not that bad. It is basically like life, you have your ups and downs but the important thing is that you survive through it all. Anyway, with all the swing 'in, it does have a few surprises. And my favorite one is when the flowers start blooming hinting that warm summer days are almost approaching.
I first saw the flowers last week while riding in a tram, and I recognized the fact that no matter how occupied the people in the tram are with their mobile phones, small kids, babies in baby wagons, they did stopped and gazed at the beautiful scenery of the flowers covering the green grasses. Long pause. This might not be as exciting to some of you like it is to me. I grew up in Burma, I was in Bangkok for a bit, we had 365 days of hot summer and flowers did not bloom in the middle of the city and left undisturbed, at least I have not seen it. I remember we had to go to Botanical gardens in the northern cities to see flowers blooming like this. Call me crazy, judge me all you want, but to me it is spectacular. Even last year, I forced all my friends to go take pictures with me with the flowers and we had a blast. So, this year we uphold the tradition that I've started last year and went out for a photo session with some friends.
It was drizzling and the sky was covered with fifty shades of grey. We were planning to call off the mission but as soon as we reached the place, I could say 'the rain never bother me anyway,' with a hair flip. We had so much fun taking pictures and instead of just keeping it to myself and my social network, I've decided to share it with you all. I hope there are flower lovers like me out there to appreciate it. Here's a little something, if you want to look at something silly.
