Spring Color

It's been long delayed, but spring seems to be slowly making its way to Japan. This shot was taken on Tuesday (it was a national holiday in Japan, so I wasn't stuck in the office!) at a garden in Mogusaen. Even here a lot of the plum blossoms were still no more than buds, but at a couple of spots (like this one) there was a nice splash of color.

I'm wondering how this will affect the cherry blossoms, and whether they will be delayed as well, or bloom simultaneously with the plums!

Either way, the approach of spring is lovely as usual – minus the allergies which are also starting to kick in something fierce.

    'Morning, +Jeff M! Good to know that you didn't have to work during the holiday! 🙂 We also went to a park in Yokohama and now you've inspired me to go through the hundreds of shots taken and pick out the best among them.

    Re: seasonal allergies-you're not alone! Here's to all the wheezing and itching and sneezing ;)

    Hope this day's a good one for ya!

    Re: the allergies, it's nice to know I'm not alone, though it's not something I would wish upon anyone (^^;
