Spring Craze

This weekend I focused on recovering myself into full form - mentally and physically. I slept, caught up on my knitting, caught up on American Idol (watched up until top 9), read and walked around quite a bit. My apartment is back in order now.


Outside, it's the most beautiful week of the entire year - starting middle of last Wednesday. I know we see the scenery every single year, but we still go nuts about the flowers.

I took these photos in just 5 minutes walk from my place. How gorgeous.

Cherry blossom trees are everywhere, not just where they intentionally plant hundreds of them to attract people, but in someone's front yard and such.

Because we had such cold winter this year, cherry blossoms are about a week late. Other flowers are also very late, which means everything is blooming right now.

More stories, in the next few days.

I have always wanted to go to Japan when the cherry trees blossom. What a blessing to experience that each year.

One day I will experience it too, just standing in the 'petal snowfall'

J, hope one day you can really make it! It's usually the last week of March or the first week of April.

Kikii, thank you :))) I've got a new lens this year!
