Hanami 2013 – plum blossoms

Spring is definitely here, the plum blossoms are blooming, quite slowly, possibly due to the weather — they tend to become fluffier with a bit more sun. It had been rather cloudy and windy the past week…

The leaves are already forcing their way out ^^; I was able to take some pictures of these lovely pink plum blossoms thanks to Jade ^o^/

Still plenty of little buds unopened, can’t wait for all of them to bloom! :D

It was a bit cloudy then, but the pinks of the delicate petals seem to pop despite the grey feeling behind :)

This is one of the things I most look forward to every year!

Some day we have to visit Japan at the actual hanami season :P

The trees in Japan are way bigger and a lot more magnificent and impressive :) But I look forward to the time when the trees locally grow bigger as well!

The daffodils are blooming too :3

Thanks for looking!
