Mink Machine

City in pink

It’s that time of year again! Even though I’m not really a flower guy, there’s no denying that these crisp pink things are a sight to behold. The distinctive trees are a herald of the spring, preceding the annual Chalmerscortègen by a week.

They are also a reminder that all things must die, however beautiful they are. Their few days of blossom are celebrated by the Japanese custom Hanami, which was celebrated in Botanical Gardens this weekend.
