Blooming chestnut tree/ 100th post

This is the chestnut tree in the town square. It is very famous in Nowy Sacz. We can say that it's our 'meeting place':) If you want to make an appointment with somebody in the center of the town, the better choice is 'near the chestnut':)
In the recent years the chestnut was sick (there are some pests which destroyed the trees). But in this year they put special bands on the trunks of many trees in Nowy Sacz (you can see it when enlarge the photo) and it seems to be that it works! All the trees with these bands are green and are blooming very beautiful:)

It is also our post #100:)

U nas też takie zakładają.
No i ładny zwyczaj -- u nas typowy odruch to umawianie się pod zegarem na dworcu (za to można dość swobodnie wybierać miejsce dworca w całej Europie ;) ).

Gratuluję setnego wpisu!

Hello M_M, I just found your blog and I think it's great. I must confess before I found your blog I had never heard of your beautiful city. Now I hope to see it in person someday.

Congrats on #100. I still need many more to hit that milestone:-)

Good grief, that is huge! I'm so glad they managed to treat the infection.

Here's to the next 100s!

That tree is enormous. I wouldn't want to be the person who rakes up all the fallen leaves. Congratulations on you 100th!!!
