Farewell Winter, Hello Spring

Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius
Pietro Aretino

No matter how long the winter, Spring is sure to follow.

What better way to herald the arrival of Spring than by enjoying the beauty of plum blossoms - blooms that symbolises the end of winter and the beginning of a warm and fertile season.

Seeing the plum blossoms
I wait for the song of the warbler
Spring has come
Veiled in mist
Izumi Shikibu
And to follow-up the celebration of Spring with the delicate beauty of cherry blossoms.

  3. Love the contrast between those two sets of pictures. Specially the first one, so cold and gray and then the lovely colours of the blossom.

    2. Sure. I already took some flower pictures at the Royal Parks near Buckingham Palace.
      But most flowers were still "sleeping".
      After my Kluang series, I think I got JB, Muar, Melaka, KL, the some KT series.
      Then, Singapore series.

      So you probably see some London pictures in June/ July, just before the Olympics games lah!
      Ha... London Olympics is kinda less showy that Beijing one.
