Cherry blossom of Helsinki

Hello summer! 

A month ago I enjoyed the cherry blossom in Paris - and last week has been busy with all the beautiful cherry blossom photoshoots in Helsinki.

We have this fantastic district called Roihuvuori where there are 152 cherry trees bring the joy to the citizens every spring. Local Japanese families and companies donated most of the trees to the park, so they get to celebrate the Hanami event also in Finland 🌸 

Last Saturday there was a Hanami event in the Roihuvuori park - sadly most of the flowers were already gone. This summer came super fast, and the cherry trees did blossom earlier than expected. But luckily I went before the event to enjoy the colors and here are some pictures from the last week. Enjoy <3

I went to take pictures around the city with singer Ilta, and we started our day in the cherry park.
