February has been unusually cold with strong, gusty winds. As a result, signs of spring have been showing up later than usual, and I have been getting rather impatient. Here and there, plum blossoms have finally started blooming, and I have been checking my plum trees daily. Not yet... Not yet... YES! I have plum blossoms at last! Spring is really here! \(^.^)/
The photo below is the first bloom on a small tree we bought last spring while visiting Awaji Shima. Plum trees can be a little fussy, so I'm pleased that mine survived the winter and seems healthy and happy.
I'm a photographer based in Osaka, Japan. I love to take photographs. I like to share.
