Chestnuts


The chestnuts are blooming around town. There are pink and white varieties, I personally prefer the pink.

  4. Really! I didn't even know that chestnuts bloom. They have become so rare in the northeast I don't think I would recognize one.

  5. Like Tanya and Jack, I've never seen a chestnut in bloom...and for that matter I don't think I'd recognize one if I saw it. It's very striking!

    1. These are just ornamental varieties, the nuts are inedible. But they're all over town, lining the avenues and boulevards. And they're beautiful! I think this is one of the best springs Berlin has ever had. (Or I just didn't notice it last year).
