Cherry & Co.

Cherry cherry lady…….   hold on…..  it is Cheri Cheri lady :-). The title of this post somehow reminded me of that song from the Eighties and it got stuck in my head. There it stayed that catchy tune and I don’t want to withhold it from your mind and ears, so here you go: Cheri Cheri Lady.

Now let’s turn our eyes and ears to the cherries and the other fruit trees that were or still are blooming in our latitudes. Apples, pears, and quince still do, cherries’ spectacle only lasts for a mere two weeks usually a bit before the other fruit trees come into blossom. So you have to be on it in order not to miss it. It was a dream of mine to take a photograph of one of those roads winding through cherry groves. This year I took the chance. After my father sent me pictures from his drive through THE region in Switzerland where you can see cherry trees everywhere, and roads winding through them, my hubby and I looked for a place to get to by public transport (we don’t have a car). Buuseregg in Basel-Land was the place we decided to go. The region has a very helpful website where you can find your own way of how you want to observe the happening: Baselland-Tourismus.

Already the bus ride up there was a joy and to my heart’s delight, the cherries were still in full bloom and gilded the green landscape with their white flowers. Some started to have a shimmer of green as the leaves were now slowly emerging as well. A blue clear sky formed the background.

Oh, my! I could have watched this canvas forever. A gentle fresh green, a delicate white, and a bright blue. Have a look yourself and I truly hope you enjoy this as much as I did and still do.

We begin with the moment when the buds are still closed but grow bigger until they open up into the delicate white flowers.

The same with apples and pears. Their buds have an even more tender look, I find, with their beautiful pinkish touch.

And now to the landscape shots.

And the winding roads.

This one here above is my favourite. And yours?

So there I am enjoying and observing yet another natural wonder on this abundant Planet Earth (photo credits below go to my hubby, merci viu mau <3).

There is still enough space for now, if you want to come and join me watching how nature unfolds.

See you there!

  • Was für eine wundervolle Blüten- und Farbenpracht!
    Vielen Dank für das einfühlsame Näherbringen dieses faszinierenden Naturspektakels.
    Mein Lieblingsbild von allen (obwohl ich sie eigentlich alle liebe und mich fast nicht entscheiden kann) ist dasjenige mit dem Traktor. Es hat so viele verschiedene Ebenen in diesem Bild, es holt mich ganz tief hinein… über die Blüten im Vordergrund, die Strasse hinauf, vorbei an noch mehr blühenden Bäumen bis hin zum tuckernden Fahrzeug und um die Kurve herum, wo sich mir als Betrachter die Frage stellt: was gibt es wohl dahinter noch zu sehen? (Hashtag: gwunderfitz 🙂 )
    Und nun setze ich mich mental neben Dich in dieses lauschige, schattige Plätzchen und geniesse noch ein bisschen die schöne Aussicht, die Du hier mit uns teilst.
    Ein schönes und sonniges Wochenende und weiterhin viel Freude beim “observing”.

    • Danke von Herzen, liebe Alexandra. Ich bin auch ganz verliebt in diese Bilder 😍 (Hashtag: Selbstlob darf sein 😇).
      Der Traktor fuhr mir buchstäblich ins Bild und ich habe durch den Sucher guckend einfach gewartet – mit Tempo Traktor hatte ich schön Zeit, mir zu überlegen, wie es wohl gut aussehen würde – bis er da war, wo er mir am besten gefiel. Er fährt direkt auf das Buuseregg, so eine Art kleines Pässli, und dann geht es hinten wieder bergab weiter durch grün-gelb-weisse, sanfte Hügellandschaft 😊.
      Ich freue mich über deine Gesellschaft unter diesem Baum! Schön bist du hier.
      Ganz herzlich und euch auch viel Gfreuts an diesem Weekend
      Daniela
