Sign of Spring

plum blossoms 3 plum blossoms 2 plum blossoms 1 friday.  i took a short trip to ogose bairin (plum grove) to admire the plum blossoms, a step ahead of the crowds that were bound to gather when the annual plum blossom festival began the following day.  and what great timing it was!  the flowers had just reached their peak, and the pale pink blossoms simply seem to glow under the blue sky.  there was only a handful of other people visiting, so i was able to enjoy a leisurely ride.

though the weather has been swinging between winter and spring almost by day, it’s a comfort to see a sign that nature, nevertheless, is moving along in a sure and predictable way.

金曜日。翌日から始まる梅まつりより一足早く越生梅林に行ってきました。陽気も良く青空の下、見頃の梅の花が咲き誇る木々の間をドライブ。他の観梅客も少なく、春の訪れを悠々と楽しむことができました。

冬?春?と日々移り変わる天候に振り回されながらも、季節は着々と進んでいるのだなと、どこかほっとした気分になれました。
