February has been unusually cold with strong, gusty winds. As a result, signs of springs have been showing up later than usual and I, for one, 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! At last I have plum blossoms! Spring is really here! \(^.^)/
The photo below is the very first bloom on a small tree we bought last spring when we visited Awaji Shima. Plum trees can be a little fussy so I'm pleased it survived the winter and seems to be healthy and happy.
I'm a photographer based in Osaka, Japan. I love to take photographs. I like to share.
