Prague and Spring

“If I were called upon to say which season shows ancient Prague at her best, I would say the spring time.
Then the orchards on the slopes are arrayed in virgin white of pear and cherry blossom, with here and there a blush from apple-trees and a faint glimmer of delicate green against cool grey of stone walls showing among the purples of trunks and branches warming into new life under the fitful rays of April sunshine.
The sunshine draws out colour from soaring spires or copper domes of churches and from the quaint towers and pinnacles of old Prague’s former defences against enemies that came like storm clouds from out of the west or over the giant mountains to northward.”

Lieut-Col. B. Granville Baker. “From a Terrace in Prague.”
