Spring in Tallinn high above: The growing ravens have a look about the scene and notice that the green of the grass is darker now and the ships are more coloured sometimes :mrgreen:

Wonderful! The trees are so interesting! I love such trees!
Seeing the forsythia - over here the elder bushes slowly start to bloom, though it has become cold(er) again, it's slowly becoming summer!
:wave: Have a nice evening!

Yes, I recommend it too.
It is a beautiful place. Old, historical areas, new parts, all look cared-for, as though people love it!

While you are there you MUST climb this tower.

Let us know if you can still walk, afterwards!

Such beautiful flowers -- those have mostly faded here but our weather is still cool and rainy -- 9-16C, hardly like May or June.

My friend in California tells the same - cold and rainy, not as usual this time of the year.

There have been several Springs since my last post :D
So, now is a year 2016. Went to look if there is some Spring. It was sunshining but still snow here and there on the ground.
