bird-cherry in flower (tuomi kukkii)

“Tuomi kukkii”, bird-cherry is in flower. Somehow the English expression does not carry the same feeling. “Tuomi” is the name of this sweet-smelling white-flowered-tree for me; and it is also one of the fragrants that carry the unmistaken message: summer is here. “Suomen suvi.”
