Spring is almost upon us


and also all the pollen that comes with it. I’m crossing my finger that my preparation, by drinking local pollen to boast my immune system would be a help to me this year.

Anyways, I recently found out that Osaka Castle have a Plum Blossom (Ume) garden. It looks like it has about 1200 plum trees planted in the area. So last weekend together with some folks at meetup we checkout how much of the plum have bloomed.

Three Beautiful Dainty Pink Plum Flowers were blooming on this branch.

Another 3 on this branch.

There were still several trees that have not started yet, specially the whipping-type. Hopefully the weather will be nice this coming weekend so I can go and check out the garden again.

How are flowers in your side of the world? Has spring already arrived?

  1. Gorgeous flowers. Here in Australia, we’re going into autumn…so the pretty flowers here should wilt very soon. But we’ll get bright golden and red leaves falling from the trees soon 🙂

Any thoughts?
