The Blossom Season Has Begun

They came a little early this year. 

Ume blossoms against the blue sky is one of my favorite things in the world.

And also very hard to find sometimes in this mass jungle of buildings in Tokyo. Many houses have plum trees in their yard but the buildings or telephone poles/lines always get in the way. Which is why I was giddy to find ume blossoms by a river with nothing blocking the blue sky!

So pretty, don't you think? x

Has spring sprung in your neighborhood?
