berlin: pink pink pink!


So this is my first Pfingstein in Berlin. Pink pink pink Berlin. My friends in the Bezirk had told me: “you’ll see, pink is the colour of the year in the Schöneberg balconies”. It is indeed…and also, Pfingstrosen (peonies) were marvellous…they are my favourite flowers.

Schöneberg in bloom. Flowers are 1 month back with respect to Italy. It was like going back in time. Orange-blossoms filled the fresh breeze along the Volkspark. Rabbits had family brunches close to the Rathaus pond.


A nice photography vernissage on Uhlandstrasse. Checking out a brand new Leckerei in the Kiez, on a quiet spot on Grünewaldstrasse…


A couple of trips to my favourite flea market. A cappuccino in each of my local cafés. Nice dinners with friends during the long sunsets in Schöneberg and Kaffee-Kuchen is SO36…in the middle of quite violent late-spring showers.


The kerbs in Berlin seem to have engaged in fierce competition…roses in Goltzstrasse, in Nolle blankets of tender-green Linden leaves…


Shop-keepers and restaurateurs do their best to have clients stopping by…


Everybody is working hard sprucing up, decorating, making that window display nicer…or even making a dull wall look nicer…(Berliners know a thing or two about dull walls).


Florists treat the street as a part of their lives not as a convenient place where to dump stuff…trees lining the streets have all sort of plants making them company.

Oh I love Berlin! Public space is something everybody cherishes and takes care of and this makes the town splendid and civilized…like the nice pond in front of home.


Tschüss pink Berlin…gotta go to Paris for work…
