Photographer's Note

Following the trend of presenting blossoming trees, here is my contribution. We have some areas with cherry trees in Portugal also, namely near my home town, but I forgot again to make a photo trip to get some cherry blossom shots, so here it goes this one, of a tree whose name I don't know, but it is quite common in the parks of Lisboa.

It was shot the same day this one was and on the same area, Parque Eduardo VII, a big park in the centre of the city that was given the name of the British King that visited Lisboa in 1902. The park already existed before that, but in the early years of the 20th century (the last ones of the monarchy) it was much enlarged and improved. You can look at these panoramique posts by Bluejeans [*] and AiresSantos [*].

WS's: Other blossomed trees (#1, #2). Maybe they are suitable for a main post than this one, but I think this one is more in accordance with the TE spirit because it shows a little bit of the city beyond just a tree in a park.

The photo is kind of deceptive, because we have been having much wintry weather since the Spring has arrived, with much rain and even some cold.
