        Fruit blooming is finally on in Aalesund.

          Other flowering trees and bushes is also showing off:




          Not sure what to make of this tree??:




          Nor do I know these flowers?:


          But the best sign of spring is that the snow on Sula is getting less and less by the day:

          Still too early to go swimming in the sea. For that Sula have to be snow free.

            The flowers at #34.5 are Crown Imperials (Fritillaria Imperialis if you want to show off!). As to the trees in the two photos just before, I was wondering if those "lumps" were galls, so I Googled and found this on Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pineapple_gall_adelgid Scroll down a bit and see what you think.
            I seemed to remember that you showed some beautiful spring photos last year so looked back and enjoyed them again. That one at #23.5 is incredible with its shading, echoed as it is in both clouds and mountains. This year the blossom predominates and #33.4 and 6 make me feel I'm right up there in the middle of it!
            Thank you for these cheering images, Ombugge.

              The fruit tree flowers look amazing!

              I wonder, and I've been talking to a good friend from Japan a few days ago, if it would be possible for the Sakura to grow, blossom and thrive in Norway. It would be awesome to try fill a part of town with Sakura flowers/trees, but then again, they are not native here and could create havoc on other local plants.
